A separation agreement is often used when married couples are “separated” or “separated.” However, a separation agreement may also be used by spouses under the common law, particularly in the circumstances of a long-term relationship. Family lawyers represent clients in court and in trials and prepare marriage, separation, divorce and custody agreements in appropriate circumstances. Family lawyers are trained to resolve disputes between the parties through a number of dispute resolution mechanisms, including litigation (bringing a case to court and seeking a decision from a judge) and negotiations with opposing counsel. Some lawyers are also trained in mediation (supporting the parties in a bipartisan manner to get agreements on the issues). Separation agreements are useful in determining, if any, the amounts of marriage or child benefits. This is particularly important insofar as the Income Tax Act provides that payments are deductible if the parties live separately and separately under a written separation agreement.
Marriage contracts, marriage agreements or post-marriage agreements are made before the marriage or after the marriage. This type of arrangement in general determines what the couple decided in advance, what would happen if there was a breakdown of the marriage in the future. Like a separation agreement, it contains, but is not limited to, what the couple has agreed with respect to matrimonial and child assistance, if any; and the division of marital property (e.g. house. B, vehicles, annuity/RRSP, debts, etc.). The most common reasons for couples to enter into a marriage contract are to “protect” assets before or during marriage from any transfer.
