Ontario based law firm Mazzeo Law Barristers & Solicitors is reaching out to the community to explain domestic contracts. The firm, whose experience extends to all forms of Family Law, including but not limited to Divorce Law, Child Custody Law, Real Estate Law, and Will/Estate Law, has been serving the Vaughan, Ontario community for many years.
“A domestic contract is essentially a written agreement about your relationship,” Mazzeo Law says, “Both a marriage contract and cohabitation agreements are forms of domestic contracts. The former is between married spouses and the latter between common-law spouses, but they fall under the ‘domestic contract’ umbrella. These two deal with how you would divide property and pay spousal support if your relationship ends. What they don’t deal with is anything related to children. That would fall under a separation agreement, which is another kind of domestic contract that deals with plans for your children, as well as property division and spousal support.”
A couple may choose to enter into a domestic agreement to allocate assets or determine how spousal support will be paid at any time, whether this is before or after they get married or start living together. Similarly, it can also be done either before or after they separate. It is important to understand exactly what the agreement entails, such as the full spectrum of the benefits it holds for each party, before signing.

“Before anyone signs any domestic contract, it is vital that both parties understand the agreement,” emphasizes Mazzeo Law. “You don’t necessarily need a lawyer to make a domestic contract. Ideally, you should, but you can make a domestic contract without one. However, both you and your spouse should most definitely consult with your own lawyers before signing one. It’s not something that should be taken lightly. You should know the contract your signing inside out and you should also know the limitations of domestic contracts before entering into negotiations. For example, a domestic contract agreement cannot limit child support or a spouse’s rights in connection with a matrimonial home.”
