Children’s Issues In Family Law
In family law cases involving children, the stakes are very high. It is important not to lose sight of the young people at the centre of the issue and to work toward ensuring that their best interests are protected.
At Gene C. Colman Family Law Centre, we vigorously advocate on behalf of parents and caregivers looking to preserve the relationships they have with their children. We help clients in Toronto, Ontario find solutions that reflect their goals and endeavour to resolve complex family disputes creatively and strategically. Under no circumstances will we adopt a position that is contrary to children’s best interests.

Office of Children’s Lawyer (OCL)
Not everyone is a fan of the OCL. We present here an article from Vern Beck of Court Watch. Vern criticizes the OCL social workers who have not maintained their professional registration with the provincial College. Vern attaches other resources where we see real people express their frustrations with the OCL. You may agree or you may disagree with Vern. Either way, there is plenty food for thought here.
