Calgary Separation Agreement Lawyers
Achieving Comprehensive Settlements
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 separation agreement. Once achieved, this agreement can set the stage for an uncontested divorce.
The lawyers at Calgary's Kirk Montoute Dawson LLP have substantive knowledge of all key aspects of divorce. This knowledge contributes to the guidance we provide to clients on the way to settlement. In addition, we are experienced negotiators able to provide flexible and innovative settlement options right for you and your family. Learn how we can help you achieve your goals by scheduling an initial consultation.
Contents Of Separation Agreements
A final separation agreement will contain terms and conditions of all major aspects of a divorce. Specifically, the agreement will cover:
- Child custody and access arrangements
- Child support, including provisions for special and extraordinary expenses
- Spousal support
- Asset division, including household debts and liabilities
Once an agreement is signed, it can be turned into a court order to ensure its enforcement. In the years following divorce, some aspects of the agreement such as child custody, access and support may be renegotiated. We will work with you to help you achieve a feasible agreement prior to divorce, and we can represent your needs and those of your child in the event reassessment is necessary.
Third-Party Guidance From Trained Facilitators
