Prenuptial Agreements & Marriage Agreements
Prior to becoming married or entering into a common law relationship, parties may want to consider whether to enter into an agreement. Such agreements typically govern the parties’ financial affairs in the event that the relationship breaks down. Such agreements may also specify how certain matters will be dealt with during a relationship. Read More

Separation can be as simple as one party announcing to their partner that that the relationship is over. It may mean that one party moves out, but in certain circumstances the parties may continue to reside together until all matters between them are resolved. Read More

Separation Agreements
When parties separate, one way to resolve matters at issue is to negotiate a separation agreement. Such agreements can resolve issues such as property division, child custody, guardianship and access, spousal support and child support. Read More

Divorce can be complicated, especially when emotions run high. That’s why your South Point Law Centre family lawyers in Surrey will help you through each phase of the proceedings, ensuring you understand what is happening so you can make an informed decision. Read More

Custody, Guardianship & Access
If separating parties have children, arrangements will need to be made concerning the custody and guardianship of the children. Essentially this means who will be assuming the day to day care of the children, and who will be making decisions concerning the children. Read More

Spousal Support
When parties separate, the issue of spousal support may arise due to disparity in incomes, health issues, foregone opportunities in raising a family or other reasons. While there may be a dependency of one party, there is also a need to be financially independent and self-sufficient. Read More

Child Support
The obligation to support a child after separation falls on both parents. Sometimes, as well, there is an obligation that falls upon a step-parent. The Child Support Guidelines provide the basis for support. The amount payable will depend on the income of the payor and the parenting arrangements that are in place. Child support may be payable for an adult child in some cases. Read More

Division of Property & Allocation of Debts
When parties separate, there are often issues regarding division of property. Property can not only include a house or a car, but also monies in accounts, investments, RRSPs and pensions. Furthermore, there may be questions regarding interests in a business, jewellery, hobbies, insurances, memberships and other assets. Read More

Common Law Relationships
Special laws are applicable to common law relationships. How property is divided when common law couples separate is not the same as for married couples. There may also be obligations that arise in terms of support for the other party or for a child. Importantly, there are time limitations that apply to any application for such support. Read More

Variation of Orders & Agreements
As time goes by, circumstances can vary. People can move. Incomes can change. Children get older. What may have been appropriate at one time for support payments or for custody, guardianship or access arrangements may not be appropriate any more. Read More

Family Law Mediation
An alternative to litigation is mediation. Mediation involves finding a solution in a non-confrontational environment involving both parties and their mediator. The mediator is a neutral party who is there to assist the parties to come to an agreement. The mediator does not represent either party. Read More
