Prenuptial Agreements in Calgary

Establishing Settlement Terms Before Marriage

Prenuptial agreements, also known as marriage contracts, are becoming increasingly common in Alberta. Prenuptial agreements establish how property will be divided in the event of a divorce and can specify the terms and amounts of spousal support and child support. For many couples, a prenuptial agreement provides peace of mind before embarking on an important personal and legal commitment. Both parties must seek out independent legal advice before signing a marriage contract.

At Kirk Montoute Dawson LLP in Calgary, our marriage contract lawyers will help you negotiate and draft a prenuptial agreement that is consistent with your legal interests and meets technical requirements for enforcement. Contact our office online to schedule a consultation regarding your prenuptial agreements.

Choosing To Sign A Prenuptial Agreement

Many motivations lead individuals to sign a prenuptial agreement. Spouses who have been in a previous marriage and experienced divorce may seek the security of a marriage contract to simplify asset division in the event of a future marriage breakdown. Individuals who come into a marriage with significant assets or children from previous relationships may want certain kinds of property excluded from the legal rules of matrimonial property division.

When you seek our counsel at Kirk Montoute Dawson LLP, we will listen to your reasons for pursuing a prenuptial agreement and assess whether such an agreement might be right for you. When it comes time to negotiate the terms of a prenuptial agreement, we will advocate for a contract that protects you and serves your legal needs. When entering a new formal commitment, your objective is naturally to retain amicable relations with your partner. Our commitment to mediation and negotiation — dispute resolution methods designed to minimize conflict — is particularly beneficial to you.
