Experienced Calgary Separation and Divorce Lawyers
At HMC Lawyers, we offer personalized and compassionate legal support to individuals going through a common law separation or divorce. For any couple, making the decision to separate is extremely difficult. At such an emotional time, a reliable and trustworthy lawyer can provide you with the guidance you need to protect your rights.
Securing Your Rights Through a Separation Agreement
Separation is legally recognized once both parties are living apart and at least one person does not intend to reconcile. Separation agreements are not legally required but often make the process of ending a long-term relationship easier, especially if minor children are involved.
Formalizing your arrangement through a separation agreement can provide financial certainty, closure, and allow your family to move forward. Our Family Law Team can help prepare a separation agreement that addresses outstanding issues, including:
- Possession of the family home;
- Division of your assets and liabilities;
- Custody & access issues (decision making and parenting time with respect to children);
- Child support; and
- Spousal support.
A divorce is the only legal way to end a marriage. Until you have a Court Order or a separation agreement in place, your spouse may share in your financial future. Do you want them to share in your future successes? If things go sideways for them, do you want to share in their future losses?
The sooner you get in touch with us, the sooner we can help you plan for the future.
Separations Agreements – Not just for Married Couples
“Adult interdependent partners”, commonly referred to as common-law spouses, should also strongly consider a separation agreement, especially if any property has been divided, or if there are any children from the partnership. The law has recently changed in Alberta regarding the division of property between adult interdependent partners. Contact us to learn more.
