A divorce can be settled by amicable agreement.
It is possible to proceed by way of joint divorce proceedings when you and your ex-spouse agree on all corollaries to divorce. Corollaries include:
- Childrens’ custody arrangements;
- Alimony payable to children or spouses;
- Division of all property included in the family patrimony and the matrimonial regime ( family furniture, family residences and automobiles, RRSPs, Pension funds, RRQ, investments etc.).
In this case, you are represented by one lawyer and there no defendant. This also reduces for both sides the fee to obtain a divorce, harmonizes the relationship between you and your former spouse and avoids placing the children in conflict situations.
