Family law agreements play a crucial role in safeguarding your interests throughout various stages of a relationship, whether entering into a formal relationship, in the midst of a relationship or reaching its conclusion. These agreements help reduce stress and costs, allowing you to focus on your family rather than legal issues. At FP Legal, we can assist you in drafting customized family law agreements tailored to your family's specific needs. We also offer guidance and negotiation services to ensure the terms of these agreements are fair and enforceable. With a clear understanding of your rights and contract law, our lawyers help you avoid potential pitfalls and ensure the validity and enforceability of the agreements.
Separation agreements serve as interim agreements between separating couples, providing a framework for their relationship pending a decision to reconcile or divorce. FP Legal can help you navigate this process by determining, negotiating, and drafting contracts that define how you will interact with each other after separation. These agreements typically cover decisions regarding property, children, support, and other relevant matters, such as insurance policies and employee benefit plans. We aim to make your separation as smooth as possible, providing guidance and support throughout the process.
An Emergency Protection Order (EPO) is a restraining order against a family member involved in family violence cases. Anyone, including children, adults, and the elderly, can apply for an EPO from the provincial court if they feel threatened or unsafe. At FP Legal, we take family violence seriously and are committed to providing prompt assistance to individuals in crisis. Our lawyers understand that domestic violence encompasses immediate physical danger and ongoing safety concerns over an extended period. We strive to help you navigate the immediate crisis and work towards a safer future for you and your family. If you or someone you know is in danger, please get in touch with us. Your safety is our top priority!
We recognize the emotional burdens of family law matters and believe that not all cases require litigation. Depending on the facts of your case, we recommend Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), such as negotiation and mediation. In Alberta, family mediation is an interest-based process facilitated by a dispute resolution officer (DRO), encouraging parties to communicate, negotiate, and resolve issues outside of court. FP Legal is dedicated to finding the right solution for your situation, providing creative legal solutions tailored to your unique family circumstances. ADR can save you time, money, and emotional stress, and we are here to guide you through this alternative resolution method.
Prenuptial, postnuptial, and cohabitation agreements are essential family law agreements that alleviate the emotional burdens associated with family law matters. At FP Legal, we can assist you in negotiating and developing agreements that meet your specific needs.
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are contracts entered at the beginning or during a marriage or common-law relationship. These agreements help establish guidelines in the event of relationship dissolution, protecting you from unnecessary conflict. They clarify rights, responsibilities, and asset division, ensuring the protection of your children's rights if applicable.
Cohabitation agreements are designed for couples living together without marriage. We can draft contracts determining entitlements and obligations, defining each partner's roles, rights, and responsibilities. These agreements provide clarity and peace of mind.
At FP Legal, we offer comprehensive legal services to guide you through the complexities of family law matters, supporting you every step of the way.
