Sherman Law LLP

Family Law/ Variation of Agreements & Orders


You may find yourself in a situation where you have a final Order or a separation agreement  in place that outlines the terms upon which you and the other party are to proceed with respect to custody and access of the children, property division, child support, and spousal support. Nevertheless, you may find that a subsequent event or change in circumstance frustrates the terms of the Order or agreement, and that one party is now seeking variation of previously agreed terms.

In these circumstances, our Kitchener family law lawyers can assist you with negotiating the variance of the terms. In Ontario law, such changes require a “material change” to have occurred that had the parties know the change at the time that the Order or agreement was drafted; the terms currently in place would have not resulted. Our lawyers can assist you in preparing a Motion to change a final Order, with supporting financial documentation and evidence to support the requested variation. This is a very common occurrence in family law and our knowledge and skill can help make this process easier for you to achieve favourable results.
