Ivan Steele Law Office



Immigrating to Canada? Getting married or separating? Act now and call our Toronto immigration lawyer and our Toronto family and divorce lawyer.

Ivan Steele Law Office is founded on its commitment to fair treatment and equal rights for members of the LGBT community. Ivan Steele Law Office is owned and staffed entirely by gay professionals. Ivan Steele Law Office provides practical, personalized and cost-effective legal services for individuals in matters related to immigration law, wills, family law and assisted human reproduction.


Our gay Toronto immigration lawyer, Ivan Steele, understands that your quality of life often depends upon your visa or permanent residence approval. Our immigration practice specializes in spousal sponsorships, common law sponsorships and family sponsorships for permanent residence in Canada for same-sex, bi-national couples. As a gay Toronto immigration lawyer, with a professional background in counseling psychology, Ivan Steele is eminently equipped to devise a winning strategy for your same-sex sponsorship application.


From a legal perspective, gay and lesbian divorces and separation are the same as heterosexual divorces. Emotionally, however, these cases often raise different issues. Many capable family law attorneys can handle a divorce case, but few have the experience, sensitivity, understanding and training it takes to effectively guide a gay or lesbian client through the potential pitfalls of divorce and the unique challenges they may face as gay men and lesbians. We also offer competitively priced value packages for the preparation of Uncontested Divorces, Wills, Powers of Attorney, Separation Agreements, Marriage Contracts, Cohabitation Agreements, Ovum and Sperm Donor Contracts, Surrogacy and Gestational Carriage Agreements and Foreign Divorce Opinions Letters for Remarriage in Canada.

 Great immigration lawyer in Toronto!, 05-10-2011 11:15AM

By: Pablo Ferrera

Ivan Steele proved to be the most practical, imaginative and result-oriented lawyer I came across. He was a resource and immense help to my husband and I. Without his thoughtful and thorough guidance through the permanent residence immigration process, we would not be here today. Ivan was also the most reasonably priced high quality attorney that I found - which made a great deal of difference for us in this transitional time in our lives! Ivan also did our estate planning and assisted us with a a variety of other legal issues. I would urge in strongest terms possible anyone contemplating bringing their spouse or common law partner to Canada to take advantage of services of Ivan Steele Law Office.

 Steady Hand During Separation - Well Worth It!, 05-10-2011 11:15AM

By: Sonia Delgada

I retained Ivan Steele Law Office to handle my separation from my spouse of 26 years, after I came out of the closet. Ivan was not only a truly collaborative lawyer who was alive to a very sensitive nature of my case, but he got me an exceptional result, and he preserved my relationship with my entire family during a tough time. I got a therapist, a coach and a lawyer in one. Well worth the money!

 Reliable, Charming and Smart - best lawyer I have had so far, 03-07-2011 05:14PM

By: Jessica Korach

I moved from Los Angeles to Canada and I hired Ivan Steele Law Office to do my immigration paperwork in Toronto. Maybe it was the California connection or just the confidence exuding from Ivan's initial presentation, but I felt at ease from the start. While I totally understood that there are no guarantees in immigration, at no point did I feel that I wouldn't get my permanent residence. Ivan was on top of all deadlines, he was easily reachable and available. While very informal with me (which is that what I prefer in a lawyer), he communicated with Immigration Canada in an amazingly firm, knowledgeable and ultimately successful way. I am now celebrating my first month anniversary as a Canadian permanent resident, thanks to Ivan. I am a return customer as well since I came to Ivan Steele Law Office to do my will and my powers of attorney. I only hope that I won't be needing his services as a family lawyer;-) I will recommend him to all my friends.
