Separation Agreement

Preparing a Separation Agreement

I meet with you to discuss the various financial and parenting matters that need to be sorted following your separation.

We talk about your rights, responsibilities, and concerns.  

We talk about the processes that are available to have the necessary discussions with your ex in order to arrive at a separation agreement.  Possible processes include discussions between the parties, discussions between counsel, discussions with counsel and the parties together, mediation, asking a court to decide, and a collaborative divorce. 

What is a Separation Agreement?

A separation agreement is a legally binding document that contains the terms of settlement reached by you and your ex.  Often it addresses parenting, child support, property division, and spousal support.  

What is the Goal of a Separation Agreement?

A separation agreement documents the arrangements that you and your ex have reached with respect to all kinds of matters:  how you will make decisions about your children, a parenting schedule, how you will financially support your children, what to do with your home, where everyone will live, how you will divide your property (which includes things like your home, investments (and debts), RRSPs, RESPs, bank accounts, pensions,  vehicles, household contents, businesses that you own…) and whether there is any entitlement to spousal support.
