Book Spotlight - Contracts for the Family Law Client

Posted by Peel Law Association on 14 June 2024


Information provided on LexisNexis' website:

There are many different contracts a family lawyer asks their client to sign, often under pressured circumstances, and in scenarios where the client, and sometimes their lawyer, may not fully understand the contract at issue.

Contracts for the Family Law Client begins by discussing the law of contract in Canada, and then explores the different types of family law contracts, according to the following categories:

  • Contracts dealing with the client and their professional - retainer agreements with one’s lawyer, chartered business valuator and Section 30 CLRA parenting assessor
  • “Coming Together” agreements - the cohabitation agreement, marriage contract and fertility and assisted reproduction agreement
  • “Coming Apart” agreements - the separation agreement, amending agreement, paternity agreement and tolling agreement
  • “Eyes Forward” agreement - the parenting co-ordination service agreement
     

The book further explores the topics of negotiation, mediation, arbitration and the various alternative dispute resolution contracts used to lead parties to “Coming Together” agreements and "Coming Apart” agreements. It also examines the practical considerations when seeking to enforce or challenge a contract, including advice about the Family Responsibility Office, the Family Law Rules, bifurcation in set aside cases and limitation periods.
