ELEMENTS OF A SEPARATION AGREEMENT
NFP & EQUALIZATION
When a marriage ends, the equal contribution of each person to the marriage is recognized by law. The value of any kind of asset or debt that was acquired during the marriage, and still exists at separation is called Net Family Property. The NFP Statement shows what an equal division looks like. The payment made to ensure equal division of property is called an Equalization Payment.
Spousal Support is the amount of money paid by one spouse to the other after separation or divorce. Many factors may affect whether a spouse is entitled to support and how much support they should receive. Child Support is governed by Canadian law. The amount of child support is based on each parent’s income, the number of children, and residency arrangements.
A Parenting Plan is a written document that outlines how parents intend to raise their child after separation or divorce. It can include decisions about Custody and Residency, Healthcare, Education, Extracurricular Activities, Exchanges, Parenting Guidelines, Child-Parent Relationships, Childcare, and Travel. A Parenting Plan is especially helpful for parents with younger children.
AN AMICABLE DIVORCE
For most people, going through the process of separation and divorce is a very emotional time. Even though you may agree to an amicable divorce, you might not agree about anything else. Talking to each other, and making mutually beneficial decisions regarding financial division, child & spousal support, and custody can be very difficult. Many couples are looking for a Separation Agreement. This process often goes more smoothly when a Separation Mediator is present.
A Mediator is a neutral and impartial third party who is there to assist you in your negotiations. You make the decisions yourselves. Couples who are unable to make these decisions together, may end up having to go to court to let a judge make decisions for them. For those interested in an amicable divorce, Divorce Mediation offers an alternative to the expensive, stressful, time-consuming, and adversarial process of going through the Ontario court system. For couples who wish to save time, money, and preserve relationships, Divorce Mediation is the answer.
Choosing to resolve your issues through mediation, and reaching a negotiated settlement replaces your need to go to court. You’ll know before we start how much the process will cost and how long it will take. You will save time, and save money. Making decisions together makes the process much less stressful than ending up in court.
The work you are doing is fabulous and on point with the family law work I am doing. I really enjoyed working with you, and hope that there will be even greater opportunities for us to work together again in the future.
