Get a Separation Agreement in New Tecumseth

For people seeking a less confrontational and less expensive alternative to court, the best option to settle all issues, including child support and spousal support, access, and property division, is to draft a separation agreement on consent. Both parties complete financial statements, and their lawyers assist them in creating scenarios that divide jointly owned property to create “win-win” custody and access agreements. A good separation agreement looks ahead to when the children are independent, to retirement, and sets out procedures for dealing with these and other future changes in circumstances. 


If “good fences make good neighbours”, then good separation agreements enable people to successfully manage their separation and co-parenting.
