Financial disclosure in separation agreement Ontario
Financial disclosure is also a vital part of the separation agreement process. This process is mandatory in court cases. Each party submits a sworn financial statement, form 13.1 as part of the process. All financial information is listed, including the assets and debts of each party from the date of marriage to the date of separation. Once the forms are completed and exchanged, the party with the higher “net family property” is to provide the other party with an “equalization payment” in order to equalize the assets accumulated during marriage.
With regards to independent legal advice, we always recommend that both parties receive legal advice when signing. This is a one-time session with a lawyer to review the agreement, ask and have answered important questions, and have a good understanding of the terms in the agreement. At the end of the session, if both yourself and the lawyer are satisfied, the lawyer will witness your signature and attach a certificate of independent legal advice. The other option is to waive legal advice and simply sign with a witness.
Our family law firm has carefully crafted a simple and easy process to complete the drafting, editing and final signing of your legal separation agreement. Once both parties to the agreement approve the final version, we use video conferencing to witness your signature and you can sign the separation agreement electronically via Docusign. If you are seeking independent legal advice on your separation agreement, we offer legal advice over phone and video. Our lawyers are flexible with dates and timings in order to complete the signing process.
