Guidance in Negotiating and Preparing Marriage and Separation Agreements in Kamloops

Our skills as lawyers continue beyond the courthouse steps. Our clients regularly call upon us to help them negotiate their issues and draft formal written agreements outside court. While few people actively want to end up in a courtroom, the emotionally charged atmosphere surrounding family law issues can make negotiations outside of court difficult. Our skills and sensitivity in this field can help break those difficult deadlocks. Our expertise can also identify critical issues you may need to consider.

Even if you have successfully negotiated an agreement outside of court without the assistance of a lawyer, it is still important to have a lawyer draft up or review that agreement. The Supreme Court of Canada has indicated that settlements where lawyers are involved in negotiating, drafting or at least reviewing the final agreement are more enforceable than agreements prepared without a lawyer’s involvement. Our lawyers have extensive experience in preparing formal written agreements.


Types of Family Law Agreements:


  • Family law agreements are not limited to issues arising from divorce or separation. If you are starting a new relationship or planning to get married, you may also benefit from a formal legal agreement.
  • Marriage or Cohabitation Agreements deal with what will happen with property, liabilities, children and support issues if the relationship or marriage breaks down. These agreements can be particularly essential for blended families.

Discussing these issues at the outset of the relationship and preparing a formal written agreement can grant peace of mind and allow couples to move forward with a happy, healthy relationship. Please call us to make an appointment with our family law lawyers in Kamloops.
