Agreements

There are two main categories of agreements in family law:

  1. Agreements that are meant to address potential issues during or before the relationship starts (commonly known as prenuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements, marriage agreements); and
  2. Agreements that are meant to deal with issues which arise after the separation (commonly known as divorce agreements or separation agreements).

Regardless of which agreement you might need, keep in mind that a strong agreement requires the following elements:

  1. Financial disclosure;
  2. The signing parties understand the legal implications of the agreement;
  3. The parties are entering into the agreement voluntarily; and
  4. The agreement itself is not significantly unfair.
