If you and your spouse decide to prepare your own agreement, it`s a good idea to get legal advice before signing. After the signing, the treaty will be legally binding and enforceable through the courts. If you do not have a dependent child, you do not need to include your consent in your divorce application. Many people may wonder why they should go to a lawyer when they already agree on everything. Others doubt the cost of a lawyer to design a separation agreement. Instead, they can turn to a self-help book to design the agreement themselves or take the trouble to write anything. To consult with our first-class lawyers for separation agreements, call us at 604-974-9529 or contact us. A separation contract is a contract between two parties and is therefore subject to contract law. The contract is binding on both parties and any non-performance by either party may assert a right to the infringement. However, a court may or may not enforce an agreement that is unfair or inappropriate, or where assistance to children or spouses is insufficient. A family lawyer is a good source of information about separation and divorce and can also provide you with legal advice on what your rights and obligations are under the law. A family lawyer can also help you reach an agreement to resolve your family law disputes. If you have to go to court, or you need a court divorce, a family lawyer can help.
The witness`s role is simply to say that the witness knew the person who signed the contract and saw him sign the agreement: “I saw Frank sign the agreement, and I knew it was Frank because Frank had been my neighbor for six years” or “I saw Ming sign the agreement, and I knew it was Ming because I could see that their driver`s license and image matched Ming`s appearance and the name on the driver`s license with the name on the agreement. That may sound selfish. Because we are a law firm. This is also the case of a lawyer who writes this article, and yes, we want your case. But that`s still true. Some people want to save legal fees by using a kit or by finding an agreement online. The problem with this approach is that these kits are generally not involved in legal intricacies in many divisions. Such online agreements may not even comply with the B.C. Family Law Act (or your respective province or state). Getting a lawyer to assist your agreement is a wise investment. It is an investment in knowledge that if your spouse wants to challenge the agreement in the future, it will not be easy to do so.
