Marriage Agreements

If you don’t already have a cohabitation agreement and you intend on marrying, a marriage agreement is a must. Marriage Agreements are often referred to as Prenuptial Agreements. Planning to tie the knot or already engaged? Understanding the legal aspects of your marriage is essential for a solid foundation. In Ontario, marriage agreements and prenuptial agreements provide couples with clarity and protection for their future together.

What is a Marriage Agreement/Prenuptial Agreement?

A marriage agreement, commonly referred to as a prenuptial agreement or prenup, is a legal document that outlines the rights and responsibilities of spouses in the event of separation, divorce, or death. This agreement covers various aspects of the marriage, including property division, spousal support, and other important matters.

Benefits of a Marriage Agreement/Prenuptial Agreement:

Protection: A marriage agreement provides protection for both spouses by outlining how assets, debts, and other financial matters will be handled in case of divorce or death.

Clarity: It establishes clear expectations and guidelines for the marriage, reducing conflicts and misunderstandings in the future.

Preservation of Assets: It allows spouses to protect their pre-marital assets and inheritances, ensuring that they remain separate property in the event of a divorce.
