  • Settlement of the spouses' property claims, and
  • Possession of the parties' matrimonial home
  • It can also include any other terms or conditions you wish to add.
  • Independent legal advice (ILA) is required for any legal separation agreement.

CanLaw's Certified Family Law separation agreement forms are designed to help you anticipate the issues and problems that need to be worked out when you separate to avoid huge costly court battles later on.
