A marriage agreement or cohabitation agreement is the Canadian version of what is known as a prenuptial agreement in the United States. The main difference between these two agreements is that unlike a marriage agreement, a cohabitation agreement involves those who are in a relationship but have no intent to marry. In both cases, these documents specify the terms to be followed in case of a separation. Marriage or cohabitation agreements are strongly recommended for relationships where one individual has a higher net worth than the other, or there have been unequal contributions to a shared home. A clear agreement drafted by a cohabitation and marriage agreement lawyer can help prevent the assets of the higher net worth individual from being divided upon separation.

If you are married or in a common-law relationship, it is always a good idea to have a marriage or cohabitation agreement drafted.


A separation agreement states the terms and conditions agreed upon by both parties when separating. Having an experienced divorce lawyer draft your separation agreement can ensure that both parties are aware of each part of the agreement, that the agreement is fair, and will stand up in Court.

Some common items included in a legal separation agreement are the division of property, child support and custody, and spousal support. These terms can have a profound impact on the rest of your life, which is why we strongly recommend having a separation agreement lawyer draft or review your agreement before you sign anything.
