What you need to know

We are a full-service law firm and are happy to help you with your family matters!

Separation Agreements

If you and your spouse have separated and want to formalize matters pending your divorce (if you decide to get divorced), we can assist with the discussion of legal issues and the drafting of the Agreement that is required to make this happen.

Once the Agreement is ready to be signed, one of the parties will be required to sit down with a separate lawyer for Independent Legal Advice (“ILA”) to ensure that this Agreement is really what you want to enter into.  That independent lawyer will review your rights and obligations under the Agreement and if you choose to sign after that discussion, you will sign the Agreement.

Cohabitation/Pre-Nuptial Agreements

If you have chosen to live with another individual and want to protect your assets in the event of a separation, in the event that you become common law spouses, or you are planning on getting married, we can assist with putting your Agreement together to protect your current assets in the event that a separation ever takes place.

Once the Agreement is ready to be signed, one of the parties will be required to sit down with a separate lawyer for Independent Legal Advice (“ILA”) to ensure that this Agreement is really what you want to enter into.  That independent lawyer will review your rights and obligations under the Agreement and if you choose to sign after that discussion, you will sign the Agreement.

Divorce
(1) Uncontested Divorce Proceedings (without children)

If you and your spouse have simply grown apart and want to formalize your divorce, we can assist with the process, paperwork, and any discussion to make this happen.  We will work with both or you, not one or the other.

(2) Uncontested Divorce Proceedings (with children)

If children are involved in your uncontested divorce, the custody and access concerning those children needs to be factored into the divorce.  This will require additional paperwork and the costs will increase slightly from the amount indicated above.  We can discuss any additional costs at our initial meeting.

(3) Contested Divorce Proceedings

If your matter is contentious and will require the intervention of the Court of Queen’s Bench of Saskatchewan, we are happy to discuss this process and help you through it.

 

If you would like to discuss any of the information presented above, please contact our office at 306-974-4900 and we will direct your call to the lawyer that can best meet your needs!
