Relationship Agreement Preparation
Above all else, when you’re dealing with separation agreements, get it in writing. If you and your spouse or partner have agreed to all terms of the separation, you should still get it in writing! The agreement dictates the terms and conditions you and your spouse have agreed to follow. At Dreyer Davison Lawyers, we often prepare customized prenuptial agreements, separation agreements, and cohabitation agreements for clients in Surrey, Langley, and the Fraser Valley.
Issues Related to Support and Guardianship
Child support is a complicated, delicate matter. If you’re wondering how much child support you owe or need to pay, we can help. As of March 18, 2013, the concept of child guardianship has been evolving by coming into the Family Law Act. The change is more than just a semantic shift; it’s a new way of understanding parenting following a separation. This new model supports each parent’s role, however, different they may be, and different levels of responsibility.
Spousal support differs greatly from child support. There is no set of standard guidelines to guide how much a spouse should pay another in the event of divorce. Spousal support is determined on a case by case basis and is often negotiated in conjunction with a divorce or separation settlement.
Family law disputes are increasingly resolved through alternative dispute resolution options, including mediation. In many situations, mediation is preferable to litigation because it is faster and it costs less. In addition, using mediation to resolve your family law issues helps you retain control over the outcome. When you take a family law issue to trial, you hand over the outcome to the judge, a third party who you’ve probably never met and will not know all of the intricacies of your family.
