Vancouver Family Lawyers Publish Tips on Pre-dispute Agreements

Vancouver family lawyers share three critical aspects of pre-dispute agreements

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - January 31, 2018) - As Vancouver-based family lawyers, the team at Kushner Group understand that very little is as harrowing as a family dispute. To avoid messy family law litigation, the best solution is to come to an agreement prior to a relationship breakdown. For more, go to: http://kushnerlaw.ca/fine-tuning-family-law-agreements/

Family Law disputes are often economically, emotionally, and physically taxing on the parties, especially if the former spouses cannot come to a resolution and find themselves seeking resolution through the Court.

To avoid a long, emotionally charged process, there are two types of pre-dispute agreements, Cohabitation and Pre-Nuptial. It is also possible to enter into a Marriage Agreement following a marriage. All of these are broadly referred to as Family Law Agreements.

According to the article, these agreements are primarily designed to protect the rights and assets of both parties and circumvent potentially costly litigation. The Family Law Act provides parties with the ability to file agreements with the Court and to have the agreements enforced.

Three critical things to remember when making a strong and enforceable Family Law Agreement include:

1) Full and accurate financial disclosure - if either party fails to make disclosure or hides assets, the agreement may be challenged;

2) Both parties must obtain independent legal advice;

3) All agreements can be subject to variation in the future if the Court determines that they are unfair, so it is important to negotiate fair and reasonable terms for both parties.

Anyone entering a relationship who wants to have an agreement drafted is advised to consult with a family lawyer. Contact (604) 629-0432 to speak to a professional at Kushner Group today.
