A Separation Agreement* is a legally binding document that summarizes the terms of your separation. This document typically includes all legal agreements pertaining to property (assets, debts, matrimonial home, gifts, inheritances), as well as child and spousal support, and a Parenting Plan.
The Agreement also includes the agreed upon terms of any life insurance policies, and medical or dental plans. Our mediators use the terms reached during the mediation process to draft the Separation Agreement.

* A Separation Agreement is a contract between you and your spouse or partner that states the settlement of issues relating to your separation. Drafting your Separation Agreement is an administrative task and by doing so does not mean we are implying that we are lawyers and providing any legal advice. We strongly encourage any persons who are going through mediation to receive Independent Legal advice from a family law lawyer.
** Having your Separation Agreement drafted and reviewed by a family law lawyer does not constitute independent legal advice. The preparation of the Separation Agreement by counsel for Turning Point Family Mediation Inc. does not, and is not intended to constitute legal advice and does not constitute a retainer or any other agreement with respect to the provision of legal services. Turning Point Family Mediation Inc. is not liable to confirm the validity of the agreement. We encourage any persons who are going through a separation and divorce to seek their own independent legal advice from a family law lawyer to ensure that any Separation Agreement is enforceable.
