Divorce Law

Divorce is an emotionally and legally complex process that can often have lasting effects on all parties involved. Our knowledgeable divorce law attorneys in Ottawa have the expertise to guide you through every step of your divorce, ensuring that your best interests and those of your children are prioritized. 

We handle all aspects of divorce law, including property division, spousal support, child custody, and visitation rights. With our diligent approach, we aim to facilitate a smooth transition into the next chapter of your life.

Decision-Making and Parenting Time

Regarding child custody disputes, the child's best interest should always be the focal point. Our family law attorneys at Hearty Law recognize the importance of maintaining strong and healthy parent-child relationships

We work tirelessly to negotiate fair custody arrangements that foster stability and happiness for the child. Our team is also well-versed in visitation rights, helping non-custodial parents secure regular and meaningful access to their children while considering the child's welfare.


Establishing paternity is crucial for determining legal rights and responsibilities and ensuring a child receives proper emotional and financial support

Our dedicated attorneys can assist with paternity disputes, DNA testing, and legal procedures necessary to establish or contest paternity. We work diligently to protect the interests of the parent and the child involved, aiming to create a nurturing environment for everyone involved.

Adoption Law

Adopting a child is a beautiful and life-changing experience. However, the legal processes surrounding adoption can be complex and overwhelming. 

At Hearty Law, we provide guidance and support to individuals and families looking to navigate the adoption process smoothly. Our adoption law attorneys have extensive experience with domestic and international adoptions, ensuring every step is carried out in the child's best interest.

Domestic Violence and Restraining Orders

When facing domestic violence, it is crucial to prioritize personal safety and well-being. Our family law attorneys are prepared to help victims of domestic violence obtain restraining orders and navigate the legal proceedings necessary for protection. 

We understand the sensitive nature of these cases and provide compassionate advocacy for our clients, empowering them to break free from abusive situations.

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are valuable tools for protecting individual rights and assets during a separation or divorce. Our attorneys can assist you in drafting these agreements, ensuring that your interests are safeguarded while promoting open communication and fair resolutions. 

We aim to provide peace of mind and security through carefully negotiating and drafting these legal documents.

Child and Spousal Support

Determining and enforcing child and spousal support can often be a contentious issue. Our family law attorneys at Hearty Law have extensive experience advocating for fair and reasonable support arrangements

Whether you are seeking child support or spousal support or need assistance with modifying existing support orders, we are dedicated to ensuring that your financial rights are protected and your child's best interests are prioritized.

Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution

We understand that not all family disputes must be resolved through lengthy court battles. Mediation and alternative dispute resolution methods can provide a more amicable and efficient path to resolving family conflicts. 

Our experienced attorneys are skilled negotiators and mediators, ready to guide you through reaching mutually satisfactory agreements outside of court.
