Whenever possible, reaching an out of court settlement is cost effective and far less emotionally traumatic to the parties and their children.
A Separation Agreement may be used to resolve some issues or all issues in your matter.
Mr. Malcolm has extensive experience in drafting full and comprehensive Separation Agreements that address all issues arising out of the breakdown of the relationship.
We strive to prepare an Agreement that will allow for a dignified resolution with no ambiguity.
An agreement out of court allows for greater flexibility and outside of the box solutions.
We strongly urge both parties to make efforts to enter into an amicable out of court resolution.
In determining the amount of child support that should be paid, the courts will consider the income of the parent paying support, together with the number of children.
The Child Support Guidelines list the monthly amounts payable based on the income and number of children that payer has.
The income of the recipient is only required when special and/or extraordinary expenses are being sought.
The Guidelines are more complicated than they appear, and Mr. Malcolm will help you navigate the complex factors and make sure that the amount you pay or receive is fair in all the circumstances.
Mr. Malcolm understands what is involved in property disputes such as disclosure of bank accounts, business assets, investments, and other assets as well as your debts and liabilities.
Mr. Malcolm has the experience and skill to carefully investigate the assets to be separated, determine which marital assets can be excluded, the value of pre-marital assets to be deducted and determining whether a professional valuator is required to determine actual value.
Our goal is to help you obtain the best possible outcome in determining the equalization payment owed.
