Marriage Contract / Prenuptial Agreement / Cohabitation Agreement
This is the most common Marriage Contract and Cohabitation Agreement package among our clients. It simply sets out that property is divided based on ownership. The parties also have the option to opt out of various legal claims such as spousal support, trust claims to property, claims to other party's estate upon death and claims against pensions.
In this package:
The process starts with a meeting between you and an experienced family law lawyer who will explain how domestic contracts work, the law and your options.
We will then proceed to draft your agreement.
Once finalized we will meet with you again to execute the agreement.
You will be provided with four (4) copies.
Your partner will then meet with their lawyer and execute all 4 copies.
All commissioning and notarization fees are included.
A Certificate of Independent Legal Advice will be provided with your agreement.
