When married or common law spouses separate, terms for child custody, access, child support, spousal support, property division and other matters need to be resolved.
It is advantageous for the separating spouses to reach agreement on all of the contentious issues themselves. If they are unable to do so, a judge may decide the terms for them. These are complex matters, and when the parties are unable to reach an agreement, and more formal court procedures are required, it is essential to represent the client's best interest with a qualified Toronto lawyer. At Nathens, Siegel LLP, we represent clients in a variety of issues, including the drafting, review, negotiation and litigation of separation agreements.
Experienced Marriage Contract Lawyers In Mississauga, Ontario
There are several different types of domestic contracts, all designed to protect a person's individual property rights in the event that a relationship ends without any reasonable prospect of reconciliation. Our lawyers are prepared to help you with all aspects of the preparation and enforcement of these contracts.
We have experience with a broad range of contracts, including the following:
- Prenuptial agreements: A prenuptial agreement allows people intending to marry the opportunity to protect their personal property rights by way of a signed and witnessed written agreement prior to the wedding. These agreements can also address child support, spousal support and other issues in the event the relationship ends in divorce.
- Postnuptial agreements: Essentially the same as a prenuptial agreement, a postnuptial agreement is created subsequent to the date of marriage.
- Cohabitation agreements: Cohabitation agreements are typically used to protect the personal property rights and other interests of common law spouses.
