property division

During marriage, many families accumulate assets such as real estate, cars, home furnishings, pensions, RRSP’s, and even debts and loans. All these items need to be shared at separation.

One of the most common mistakes that people make with their finances during divorce is not being well informed and not receiving legal advice until it is too late. Making sure you understand your legal rights early is essential to your financial security.

“I really can't say enough good things about Steve Benmor and his team. Divorce is never an easy process to go through however, he was very kind, understanding, and extremely supportive - often times going above and beyond his role as my advocate. As an advocate, he made sure that I stayed focused on what was important and offered me the right amount of perspective and insight at the right time so that I could come up with as positive of a resolution as possible. Steve and his staff also made sure that I kept cost to a minimum so that the what can be a very expensive endeavor, remained reasonable. I do credit Steve, Marigona, and Cris with ensuring that I stayed true to myself, my beliefs, and my integrity throughout the entire process.”

“From the moment I walked into BFLG office, I felt a sense of calmness as I was greeted by Cris and the staff. I came into the office under tremendous stress from my marriage breakdown. They had settled me down and then I was introduced to Steven. After reviewing the details of my situation, he asked me how I would like to proceed, and immediately responded by saying I want this, that, the other thing and a quick divorce. Well, Steven quickly gave me a dose of reality(in a positive way) I was not prepared for. During our meetings, I quickly realized that Steven is a very intelligent and knowledgeable Family Law specialist. He is a very tactical thinker who knows how to deal with the conflicting issues very efficiently. Steven is a strategically aggressive, no nonsense type of Family Lawyer whom I would highly recommend to represent me as my Legal Council. I was truly impressed with Steven’s performance during my ordeal, and have nothing but the utmost respect for him and the BFLG team.”

“I could not be any happier that I chose Steve and his team to represent me in my divorce. It was a very complex and high conflict case. I found Steve to be respectful, knowledgeable, and patient when he had to educate me on realistic expectations under different circumstances. I really appreciate how he strategized my case by paying close attention to details that proved critical to the endurance of the court’s decisions. Steve committed his talent and expertise to safeguard my future - I highly recommend him.”

“Steven and his team are outstanding. They are knowledgable and attentive in every aspect of the process. Steven and his team handled my complex and high conflict divorce for over 2 years."

“We found Steven Benmor through recommendation from our previous lawyer. His office and staff are (Cris and Marigona) highly professional and responsive. After his careful review and understanding in my partner's case he did his best to solve the case in cost-effective way (although the respondent was not cooperating). In court my partner was represented better, we appreciate every effort he put into to have truth to be seen in court. He was well prepared and did a good job. We went thru a couple of lawyers and the case was moving very slow, we finally found Steven Benmor that make the case move faster. Steven Benmor is more experienced, responsive and knowledgeable and he knows how to execute things properly. We are grateful for his service and hereby recommend Steven Benmor without reservation. Although the case is still on going, but we see the light coming out, we feel that he's not that kind of lawyer that will make the case longer and more complicated. With Benmor's help, we hope that soon the case will be over and my partner will get what he deserve, we know Benmor can do it. We keep you posted.”
