Married spouses are entitled to an equalization of their net family property upon separation. Meaning thereby, they are not only entitled to the division of property, but also the equalization of the value of property. The process is followed by specific calculations which are in accordance with the Family Law Act, known as the equalization of net family property. Equalization of net family property results in one of the spouses; the one bearing greater net family property, owes the other spouse a debt in the form of equalization payment. It may amount to more or less than half of the other spousal’s total assets. I am familiar with the issues that arise in these kinds of cases, and I am ready to assist you.
Marraige Contracts (Prenuptial Agreemnets) & Cohabitation Agreements
Marriage contracts (also called prenuptial agreements) and cohabitation agreements are used by parties for the protection of their interests when entering into a spousal relationship. These contracts highlight each party’s rights and responsibilities in the relationship. In the event of a relationship breakdown, these domestic contracts assist to clarify, extend, or restrict certain rights as spousal support or property rights. A marriage contract or cohabitation agreement is only legally binding once it satisfies the requirements outlined under the Family Law Act. When entering into a domestic contract, it is in your best interest to have it reviewed by a lawyer who is competent in family law. I am experienced in the negotiation and preparation of domestic contracts.
