Calgary Prenuptial Agreement Lawyers
Establishing Settlement Terms Before Marriage
Prenuptial agreements are becoming increasingly common in Alberta. Also known as a marriage contract, a prenup establishes how property will be divided in the event of divorce and in some cases will stipulate whether and how much support is payable. For many couples, a prenuptial agreement provides peace of mind prior to embarking on an important personal and legal commitment.
At Kirk Montoute LLP in Calgary, we will help you to negotiate and draft a prenup that is consistent with your legal interests and meets technical requirements for enforcement. Contact our office online to schedule a consult regarding your prenuptial agreements.
Choosing To Sign A Marriage Contract
Many motivations lead individuals to sign a prenuptial agreement. When spouses have already experienced divorce, they may wish to have the security of a legal contract that will make asset division easier in the event of relationship breakdown. Individuals who come into a marriage with significant assets or children from previous relationships may want certain kinds of property excluded from the legal rules of matrimonial property division.
When you seek our counsel at Kirk Montoute LLP, we will listen to your reasons for pursuing a prenuptial agreement and offer our assessment as to whether such an agreement might be right for you. When it comes time to negotiate the terms of a prenup, we will advocate for an agreement that protects you and serves your legal needs. When you are entering a new formal commitment, your objective is naturally to retain amicable relations with your partner. Our commitment to mediation and negotiation — methods of dispute resolution designed to minimize conflict — is of particular benefit to you.
