Contents And Benefits Of Separation Agreements

A separation agreement is a contract specific to the needs of clients involved in each family law case to record the various terms by which they have settled their case. In some cases, the issues and agreement terms are straightforward. In others, such as relationships or marriages of considerable length with significant or complex assets and debts, or where children involved and there is often widely divergent incomes, the terms can be very detailed and the agreement substantial in length.

In either case, legal advice from an experienced family law lawyer is vital and should be obtained as early as possible. Once signed, a separation agreement is binding. If mistakes or omissions are discovered later, it can be very difficult to alter or change the agreement. Often clients can miss vital concerns, or fail to recognize issues that will arise in the future, which an experienced lawyer will identify.

Separation agreements can be reviewed and may be set aside by the courts under the Family Law Act in limited circumstances, and one of the most common reasons for this is the failure by one of the spouses or partners to make full and complete financial disclosure, or to actively conceal assets or income. John Fairburn is a lawyer who is experienced at pursuing these types of appeals.
