Cohabitation & Marriage Contracts – Ottawa
Marriage and cohabitation contracts are best written when you’re planning your life together and agree on the major details.
I can help you work with those details to give yourselves the guidelines you might need if you ever need to consider separation. Much like home insurance, having a marriage contract means peace of mind in the present, knowing that you have done your best to protect your future and ease your family’s future in the unfortunate event of a separation or divorce.
A marriage contract – also sometimes called a prenuptial, or prenup, agreement – will be more important if you and your partner need to plan for a family business or farm, if one of you has significant amounts of debt, if one of you moves frequently for employment (military, RCMP, or similar work), or if one or both of you have children from a previous relationship.
