If you are having trouble determining how to best draw up a separation agreement that is best for all, the collaborative approach may be a great choice.
If you and your spouse are ready to sign a separation agreement, it may be important to you that it includes those things which are beneficial to you both. If you are having trouble determining how to best draw up a separation agreement that is best for all, or if you want to make sure the needs of all family members are met, the collaborative family law approach may be a good fit for you.
Our members are made up of a highly skilled and experienced team of legal, financial, and family professionals who can work with you to develop a separation agreement that is mutually acceptable in Kitchener-Waterloo and Cambridge, Ontario. As part of the collaborative approach, we ask that all parties sign a Participation Agreement that states that you and your spouse will not go to court or threaten to go to court. This agreement allows you and your spouse to talk through your issues in a neutral environment and take responsibility for the actions outlined in your separation agreement once complete.
The collaborative approach is a great choice when you also need to determine decision-making responsibility and parenting time arrangements with your spouse. Rather than having a judge determine the outcome of your arrangements in court, you and your spouse can jointly determine what is best for all.
If you feel that collaborative family law may be the right choice for your family as you pursue a separation agreement, reach out to our members today for answers to your most pressing questions. Our goal is always to help families avoid the stress and cost of going to court, while determining what is truly best for all.
