Renshi v Renshi, 2022 BCSC 1942 (CanLII) The issue in focus: Application for an order setting aside terms of a separation agreement regarding child support
BOUTIQUE KELOWNA FAMILY LAW FIRM
The Family Law Act encourages out-of-court resolutions. Parties are able to enter into agreements to resolve existing family law disputes or future family law disputes.
What you need to know about Separation Agreements
Maio Law can help you navigate the intricacies of either a:
- Cohabitation Agreement
- Marriage Agreement (Prenuptial Agreement)
- Separation Agreement
- Parenting Plan Agreement
As part of navigating these agreements issues that often arise are:
- Child Support
- Child Custody issues more properly defined as guardianship, parenting arrangements which encompasses parenting time and parental responsibilities
- Spousal Support – entitlement, amount and duration
- Property division inclusive of:
- Real Property
- Personal Property
- Pension Plans
- Family debt
In navigating these issues, Maio Law can assist parties in the negotiation process. Negotiation of these issues can be either through the parties themselves or through either parties respective counsel. Often times the parties may choose to take part in mediation. Mediation can be an effective way to reach consensus on many family law issues. A neutral and independent third party meets both parties and assists them in attempting to reach agreement on issues the parties choose to mediate.
Sometimes the situation is such that the parties are unable to navigate these issues without the assistance of the formal court process. Where this is the case, then Maio Law can help you with implementing a strategy and filing the family law agreement in either the Provincial Court of British Columbia or the Supreme Court of British Columbia, if necessary.
Although the categories of issues are relatively the same for every file, each family law file is unique with particular aspects that are more or less important depending on the family dynamics. That is why at Maio Law your experience will be custom tailored to your unique situation.
