Separation Agreement

Do I need a Separation Agreement?

When filing for a Divorce in Ontario, one the main questions by clients is whether they need a Separation Agreement. Although a separation agreement is not mandatory, it is always better if you and your spouse can agree on how to settle the issues between you. Using the court to decide these issues can be extremely expensive and time consuming. Signing a separation agreement can save you from the hassle of court proceedings.

A Separation Agreement is  essentially a contract that is signed by both you and your spouse in order to resolve issues related to spousal support, custody, property, etc. Even if you or your spouse are not making these claims, a separation agreement is drafted in order to waive some of these rights in the future. Once the separation agreement is signed, the court treats it as if it was a court order. This means that it is a legally binding agreement, and the court can enforce the agreement if one of the parties to the agreement fails to meet his or her obligations under the agreement.
