Separation Agreements in Calgary

Achieving Comprehensive Separation Agreements

Few divorces are ultimately settled by a judge. In most cases, even when spouses intend to go to court, they end up resolving their issues through negotiation of a comprehensive legal separation agreement. Once achieved, this separation agreement can set the stage for an uncontested divorce because it is a legally binding document.

The separation agreement lawyers at Kirk Montoute Dawson LLP have substantive knowledge of all critical aspects of the divorce process. This knowledge contributes to clients gaining guidance on signing a separation agreement. In addition, we are experienced negotiators who can provide flexible and innovative separation agreement options that are right for you and your family. Learn how our separation agreement lawyers can offer independent legal advice by scheduling an initial consultation.

In the years following a divorce, some aspects of the separation agreement such as child custody, child support, access and spousal support may be renegotiated.
