Some Considerations before you meet with Your Prenup Lawyer

Commons Questions about Prenuptial agreements

In Canada, prenups or prenuptial agreements are called marriage agreements or marriage contracts. In Canadian legislation, prenuptial agreements are called domestic contracts (this is really a catch all term for separation agreements, cohabitation agreements and marriage contracts).

At Angrove Law, we provide clear customized domestic contracts for a flat fee – no retainer fees and no hidden costs! Book a consult with us today! 

Our process is collaborative. Meaning you and your partner and I work together to draft a contract unique to your situation. We then call in independent legal advice for a quick once over.

A prenuptial agreement protects you from the equal division of assets required by Canadian law, ensuring that your property and assets are distributed according to your wishes rather than a default 50/50 split. It also safeguards you from being responsible for your spouse’s debts, clearly delineating financial obligations. Additionally, a prenup sets out your rights and responsibilities during the marriage and after separation, providing clarity and reducing potential conflicts, ultimately offering peace of mind and financial security.

In Canada, you can expect to pay between $1,500 and $30,000 dollars for a prenuptial agreement. At Angrove Law, we provide flat fee pricing with no retainers. We charge between $1,200 and $1,900 for custom prenuptial agreements.

The cost depends on how many assets you have, if you and your spouse are in agreement, and how clear your lawyers are. The cost of your marriage contract depends on the complexity of the division and the number of assets involved. Book a consult today for us to give you your flat fee price!

Starting a marriage with a prenuptial agreement is very common; it’s estimated that nearly 15% of marriages begin with a prenup. This percentage is rising, especially as housing becomes people’s largest asset.

Prenups can serve various purposes. For example, business assets are not considered marital assets in many Canadian jurisdictions, some couples prefer to ensure these assets are split equally upon separation and need a contract to say so. Additionally, prenuptial agreements can help define parenting roles in blended families, providing clarity and security for all parties involved. Or even, protecting inheritance money once it has been spent on joint assets.
