Details about Angrove Law Domestic Contract Services

In Canadian legislation marriage agreements or marriage contracts are referred to as domestic contracts. This is really a catch all term for any document signed by parties who are romantically involved, about their relationship.

At Angrove Law, we provide clear customized marriage agreements at fee-for-service pricing – no retainer fees and no hidden costs! Getting married? Realized you want to navigate the assets and debts of your marriage on your own terms? For more information check out our page about marriage contracts.

Cohabitation agreements are a type of domestic contract specifically for unmarried couples, often referred to as common-law. The definition of who is common-law or cohabiting differs from province to province. It may apply to you even if you don’t think your relationship is that serious! 

Learn more about cohabitation agreements.

Common-law partners have different property rights and obligations than married spouses. Unmarried partners are not automatically entitled to each others assets nor are they protected by law in the same way as married couples. As an unmarried person, you can still split assets upon separation but without a cohabitation agreement everything must be proven. You can avoid  court time by getting an agreement!

Wills are not a type of domestic contract but often go hand in hand with marriage contracts or cohabitation agreements. The terms in your Will need to be consistent with those in your domestic contract otherwise you’re setting up your beneficiaries for a fight. When drafting your marriage contract or cohabitation agreement, we will ask you if you have a Will or any designated beneficiaries under other documents. If you don’t have a will, depending on your circumstance, it’s usually a good time to get one at the same time as your domestic contract so that inconsistencies do not occur. If you do not have a will your estate will be handled by the Inestate Act of your province and anything could be left up to interpretation.

Domestic contracts and estate planning go hand-in-hand. At Angrove Law, we’re happy to provide assistance with both. There will be estate planning aspects to your domestic contract. Does your spouse or partner get your assets when you die? If not this needs to be clearly laid out in your domestic contracts and your estate planning documents need to say the same thing. Estate planning documents will include no only your will but designated beneficiaries in your insurance policies, investment accounts, pension benefits, etc.
