Legal Separation Canada
A legal separation agreement in Canada is a contract between two former spouses that sets out each party's rights on issues such as child custody and access, division of property, child support and spousal support.
It has the force of a court order.
A separation agreement in Canada is an important document and will affect you for years to come, so it is important that it be properly drafted by a good family law lawyer.
Legal Separation Agreement
Normally, your family law lawyer will write to your spouse or your spouse's lawyer, stating that you would like to negotiate an amicable separation agreement. Financial information would be exchanged between you and your spouse to ensure that each party is aware of the other's finances. Then a separation agreement would be negotiated that is satisfactory to both parties.
