Jeffrey has advocated for his clients in the Superior Court of Justice and on appeals at the Divisional Court. He is experienced in negotiating and litigating the contested issues of support, child custody and access, and division of property, as well as drafting the essential documents involved in family law, such as prenuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements, and separation agreements.

Using his experience and ability to explain complex legal concepts in easy-to-understand language, Jeffrey has authored several books including; Prenup Essentials: What Canadians Need To Know as well as several other family law books.

Jeff advises you may want a prenup if any of the following apply to your situation:
+ You believe family law treats unmarried couples unfairly
+ You want to avoid an expensive legal case if the relationship ends
+ You are entering a second (or third) relationship
+ Existing estate plans
+ Ownership in a business
+ You own a home prior to the relationship
+ You have more assets or a higher income than your partner
+ You expect a significant inheritance or who will be taking over a family business
+ Both partners have significant assets
+ One party has significant debts
+ You seek economic protection upon separation or death of your partner
+ You have children from a previous relationship
+ One partner is foregoing a career due to the relationship

Even if you decide that a prenup is not for you, going through the discussions with your partner is beneficial. It is a good idea to know what your partner’s assets, liabilities, and income are in addition to what their attitude towards handling money is, and what they would consider fair if your relationship ever ended.
