Single Dads ~ Separated Dads ~ Divorced Dads

Helping Men and Fathers with Separation and Divorce Concerns Since 1994!

The #1 reason we get great results...


Our overall approach is quite different. We've tested it in 1000's of cases since 1994, and our protocols when followed tend to produce better results, because we WAGE PEACE in Family Court.


Judges are not looking for the parent who can sling the most mud, they are looking for the mature parent who can WAGE PEACE on behalf of their children, to shield them from the ugly messs separation, divorce and Family Court proceedings often become.


We systematically teach you how to become a SUCCESSFUL STRATEGIC DIVORCED DAD as opposed to a STRUGGLING CLUELESS DIVORCED DAD, which is why you began searching for help, which has led you to this website.

 EXPLORE IT...There are a lot of GREAT Free Resources on the site.

Any lawyer can give legal advice. HOWEVER - All of our lawyers have a proven track record of success with Court orders that verify you are getting qualified legal advice as opposed to unqualified legal advice from a lawyer who does not have court orders to back up their claimed track record. Always ask for Court Orders from your lawyer as proof they have had success helping a man / father acheive the goals you've set out for yourself. Court Orders are Public Documents unles sealed by the Court so there are no privacy issues.


When you meet with us we can show you a very lrge sample of Court orders we have obtained as Court Agent / Law Clerk (prior to changes in the law in 2007 that no longer allow Court Agents, Law Clerks and Paralegals in Family Court).


We also have Court Orders since 1994 proving our experience and that of the lawyers we work with helping and winning and improving situations for Men / Dads in Family Court.


Make sure to check out our CASE STUDY VIDEO on this page. These results are typical when you follow the protocols and education, and mindset we share with our clients through our coaching, counselling, education and lawyer referral services.

Are fathers important to children?
98% of Canadians agree Fathers are important to children!
Many fathers feel that they are not treated equally or fairly during separation or divorce, especially when they wish to maintain their parenting relationship with their children. Sometimes their efforts to spend more time with their kids are pegged as suspect or as a means to reduce their child support obligation. The truth is that most fathers genuinely care about the health and welfare of their kids. More importantly, children miss spending time with their dads. Studies prove that consistent parenting time (access/visitation) greatly benefits children self-esteem especially during separation.      
For kids, divorce and separation is a very scary time. They most often do not understand why it's happening and tend to blame themselves. Children may feel lost or vulnerable during this time. To help them through this difficult period, a consistent on-going parenting relationship with both parents can give them the feeling of security they need while eliminating the need to escape – teens, for example may use drugs or alcohol to forget about the pain of the family breakup.
Children suffer the greatest loss!
Loss of their family, stability, security and the benefits of parenting and guidance that they deserve and long for, from both of their parents. Let us help you remain an active parent.
FREE "Q and A" Support Group Meetings Attend our free weekly 'Q & A' Support Group Meetings in Toronto (Wednesdays 7-9pm) or our monthly 'Q & A' Support Group Meetings (Tuesdays 7-9pm) in Hamilton – Meeting Info
You'll meet other divorced dads who can share what has worked, and what has not worked both outside and inside Family Court during negotiations, mediation and at hearings.
Some of these fathers have no lawyer, because they have no funds to sustain the cost of hiring one - together as a group, we help each other become more educated, support each other through the tough times of separation and divorce, and in some instances fathers get together to either watch in Family Court, learning how it operates, or to support each other when they have a hearing before the Family Court.

We do not offer legal advice at our support group meetings. Legal advice can only be obtained from a lawyer. We do not have a lawyer in attendance at our support group meetings. Our free support group meetings are chaired by a senior certified law clerk who is also a divorced father and an adult child of divorce. Our Support Group meetings are a place to share and exchange personal experience and knowledge about the process of separation and divorce. Discussions at our meetings are of a supportive nature so that fathers can gain a clearer understanding of separation/divorce from the perspective of fathers who have had success in Family Court. Meeting dates are subject to change.


All information, documents, links, resources on this website and the information discussed at our Q&A support group meetings DOES NOT CONSTITUTE LEGAL ADVICE. 
If you wish legal advice please consult with a lawyer. The information on this website is simply one possible starting point for your 'strategic consideration'.
