Partners Part Peacefully was created out of necessity to provide an alternative to couples, who up until now, felt trapped.
Most couples facing the challenges of separation and divorce in Ontario felt that they had no alternative but to enter the legal arena. They really didn’t want an expensive and lengthy conflict, but saw no other available divorce options.
Most couples know, as we discovered though our work, personal experience and observation, that the legal system to get a divorce in Ontario creates and escalates tension and stress between the couple. It is costly, unaffordable and couples are afraid of the impact on their children and the state of their relationship post-divorce. Spouses would often say , “we know what we want, we've agreed and we don’t want to fight it out with lawyers.”
What is needed and wanted is a system that helps couples achieve their desire for an amicable legal separation so they can quickly and peacefully start the next chapter of their lives. We knew exactly what the couples were saying, we listened and in 1999 Partners Part Peacefully was created as am answer to this request. It is a service that educates clients on the key areas of divorce, gets resolution on areas not settled, provides financial counseling and ultimately assists the couple to finalize their fair, legal divorce in a non-confrontational way.
