A divorce or separation is never a pleasant situation for you and your family, but it is important to seek the right legal counsel and representation. In order to protect your rights when you are going through a separation or divorce, it is very important to know the law as it applies to you and your respective rights and obligations under it. Rath Law Office can help you come to an understanding about such matters. Our divorce Lawyers in Medicine Hat can help you navigate the issues in divorce and separation law with regards to children, support, and property.

  • Adultery

  • Abuse/cruelty

Our Expertise

With years of experience in family law, our Lawyers provide the legal representation you require, whether it is in the Courtroom or during negotiations. We’ll help you find solutions through negotiation or litigation with respect to child custody and access, child support, spousal support and property division. Our Lawyers are dedicated to helping you through the tough times with the least amount of dispute and cost. When negotiation fails or breaks down, rely on our team to vigorously represent your interests in Court.

However, it is best to remember that Court cases should always be the last resort. Coming to a mutual agreement and achieving a resolution as soon as possible reduces stress as well as legal fees. Our Lawyers focus on finding solutions that help you avoid stressful legal proceedings.

Spousal Support and Adult Interdependent Relationship Support

Under Canadian law, one spouse can be ordered to pay spousal support to the other. Our experienced divorce Lawyers can help you negotiate spousal support payments. The Court will be involved only when both parties cannot come to an agreement. Some of the factors that determine how much spousal support is awarded:


  • Status of each spouse in terms of income and assets

  • Employment

  • Age and health

  • Education

  • Standard of living during marriage

  • Duration of the marriage

Child support is not included in spousal support payments. You cannot evade spousal support payments by declaring bankruptcy. 

If you have questions concerning divorce, separation or property law, please feel free to contact us.
