Make sure you understand points about a Canadian divorce

July 26, 2015

One of the issues that you might come across is the separation agreement. This agreement outlines a variety of matters that might come up while you are separated from your ex but before you get divorced. It is important to know that this is a binding agreement. You can’t just ignore the terms of the agreement if you decide later that you don’t like them.

We can help you negotiate a separation agreement. We can help you with every aspect of the agreement. You should think about spousal support, child support, visitation, property division and any other points that are important to you or your ex. Mediation can often help you come to an agreement with your ex.

If you opt to go through with the divorce, you should remember that there are only three grounds for divorce in Canada: adultery, 1 year of separation, or mental and physical cruelty. While adultery and cruelty are possible, many couples opt for separation as the grounds for a divorce.

When you are going through the divorce, it is sometimes possible for you and your ex to decide on the terms and agree on those terms. In that case, you might be able to avoid a lengthy court battle. Before agreeing to any terms, make sure you understand your legal rights.
