Negotiating the terms and signing a Separation Agreement are critical steps in a divorce process. This Agreement is a binding contract between you and your ex-partner and must be properly prepared in accordance with the law. Separation Agreements do not end a marriage; only a divorce order can do that in Canada.
Separation Agreements are made up of several sections, including clauses or terms relating to:
child support obligations
spousal support obligations
net family property calculations which include division of assets, division of debts, valuations of pensions and the matrimonial home
dispute resolution options
independent legal advice and
full financial disclosure from both parties.
When negotiating a separation agreement, a deep knowledge of the law and extensive experience preparing such a document are critical. At Petty Law Office, Mark Petty does his utmost to ensure that your interests are accurately represented.
