Drafting Effective Separation Agreements

Deciding who gets to keep the car, the dog, and that expensive piece of art hanging on the wall means making some difficult choices. However, many couples find it easier to accept the terms of a separation if they have some control in the outcome through a separation agreement.

At Henderson Heinrichs LLP, our firm's sole focus is on resolving contentious issues between married and common-law couples (known as interdependent relationships in Alberta) after a separation. With offices in both Vancouver, British Columbia and Edmonton Alberta, we assist couples by developing effective separation agreements that are fair and protect their interests.

Putting The Control In Your Hands

Drafting a separation agreement means you get to settle your issues instead of a judge. You can do this through your lawyers, or through alternative dispute resolution techniques. Our legal team will advise you on how negotiation and mediation works and the legal issues that need to be addressed.

Once we get to know you, and what issues matter to you, we will develop a legal strategy that targets the results you want to see.

Protecting Your Interests

Creating a separation agreement through negotiation or meditation works well because as your lawyers, we know you, your family situation, and what matters most to you during these proceedings. We know what you want to achieve, and what you're willing to negotiate regarding support, child care or division of property.
