The Legal Services Society (LSS), BC`s mutual legal assistance provider, recently enhanced its dialogue tool, one of the interactive online trails on the MyLawBC website. MyLawBC should help you find solutions to common legal problems. In these eNews, LSS explains how using the dialogue tool can help a couple create a separation agreement. The court can only enforce an agreement if you have filed it in court. You can submit the agreement to the court at any time, but it`s a good idea to submit it shortly after signing. This gives you one less thing you need to worry about if you need the court to impose it. The Unbundled Legal Services website can help you find a lawyer who can verify a draft separation agreement and provide you with independent legal advice. For these reasons, you should consider a separation agreement: every year in British Columbia, thousands of couples decide to stop living together. The process of ending a relationship is not easy, and it takes time to fully recover from a breakup.

They could help negotiate a deal. If you can`t draft an agreement directly with your spouse, there are services that can help you negotiate, including lawyers, mediators, and family justice advisors. If you have a separation contract and want to divorce, you can file for an uncontested divorce.
