Family Disputes, Family Law & Family Court
I focus my law practice at Dickson Appell exclusively in family law. I have extensive trial and appeal experience, serving high-net worth individuals with complex assets or compensation, as well as international clients dealing with jurisdiction or Hague issues. I strive towards efficient and long-lasting resolutions for my clients, while aiming to reduce the anxiety that comes with family law disputes.Connect with Alin
Resolving High Conflict Cases Quickly
Family law litigation cases can be complex. I strive to resolve all cases – including high-conflict separation or divorce – quickly and efficiently. Throughout my career, I have built the skills required for successful negotiations, and have appeared regularly before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice and Ontario Court of Appeal. With both family law trials and family law appeals, I have represented my clients professionally and capably, helping them achieve the outcome they want.
As a parent, you want to create the best life for your child. Dividing time and responsibility, while ensuring a healthy future for your child is critical. Whether you’re concerned about relocation, or parenting time, negotiating child support, or looking to enforce a Parenting Agreement, I can help protect your rights and the welfare of your children.
Dividing your investments and bank accounts, settling ownership of a business, possession of the family home – these are complex issues that need attention in any divorce. In Ontario, common law spouses are treated differently than married spouses when it comes to dividing assets, requiring a case-by-case analysis. I specialize in high net worth family law, so you can negotiate confidently, knowing I will help you find creative solutions to your legal problems.
Your relationship is a partnership, and when you separate, you may be eligible for support, whether you are ending a common law relationship or marriage. I can help you understand your rights when it comes to support, negotiate for your support amount, and, if necessary, appear with you in court to protect your rights and get you the compensation you deserve.
