Creating Optimal Separation Agreements
When married or common-law spouses separate, important decisions need to be made regarding post-relationship legal issues such as parenting, financial support for children and spouses and division of property. While some of these may require the assistance of a judge, many couples are able to reach a mutual consensus on the issues arising from their separation.
At Nathens, Siegel LLP, our lawyers have years of experience negotiating and drafting both simple and complex separation agreements for clients across the Greater Toronto Area, Ontario. Our goal is to help you arrive at fair, workable arrangements as you set off on the next stage of your life.
Protective, Enforceable Separation Agreements
Since separation agreements are actual legal contracts, they must be carefully contemplated and crafted. It is important to ensure that your contract is enforceable. It is also important to ensure that any anticipated changes are properly addressed. Once parties sign the document, they are bound by its terms. Except in rare circumstances, judges generally do not set aside an existing separation agreement.
Our lawyers offer a number of services involving separation agreements. We can represent you in the drafting, review, negotiation and litigation of separation agreements. Our goal is to ensure that you leave the relationship with arrangements that safeguard both your and your children’s best interests – financially and practically.
