Marriage, Cohabitation And Same-Sex Contracts

Living with a long-term partner or spouse creates unique challenges in the event of separation. At Wellhauser Family Law Barristers LLP, our lawyers are dedicated to helping you protect your future with a well-drafted agreement.

We help clients in Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge with all matters related to marriage contracts, cohabitation agreements and same-sex contracts in Ontario.

Why Do You Need A Contract?

A contract will protect your rights if you separate and make the process of dividing property and assets easier for everyone. It can also prevent costly and time-consuming litigation if drafted properly.

Domestic contracts or agreements can address how property will be divided after a separation. Matters addressed in these contracts often include:

  • Property ownership and how to divide property
  • Spousal support or financial obligations
  • Child custody and support guidelines
  • Division of one party's estate upon death

Agreements should protect your assets in the event you split up in the future. To provide the best protection, we will diligently review your financial statements to ensure everything is disclosed. We usually want to review the last three years of your income and other financial statements to get a complete picture of your assets and liabilities.

We always strive to comply with the rules of the court when drafting contracts to make sure they will be upheld. Our meticulous review of documents helps us prepare a contract that will protect you.

Drafting A Clear Agreement With Realistic Expectations

We understand the emotions of each side and the challenges you need to address when negotiating and drafting these agreements. We will provide sound advice and set realistic expectations throughout this process.

It is not easy to think about a potential separation. However, preparing for the future will make sure you and your spouse or partner are protected in the long run. With our experience and ability to find resolutions in complex family law issues, we are well-equipped to help you draft and negotiate a contract. We will also assert your rights in court if litigation is required to protect your best interests.
