General Information


Certificate of Independent Legal Advice
Marital Agreement

A marital agreement (such as a prenuptial agreement, postnuptial agreement, cohabitation agreement, or separation agreement) provides a roadmap for resolving differences if a relationship fails.  While such an agreement may present a simpler and less expensive option than going through the regular divorce process, a court is more likely to uphold it if it is clear that each party was advised by independent counsel as to the terms of the agreement before signing it.  While a marital agreement should generally include a statement that each party has obtained independent advice from a lawyer as to the effect of the agreement on the rights of that party, it is also prudent for each party to execute a Certificate of Independent Legal Advice stating that such advice has been provided.

A Certificate of Independent Legal Advice is a document in which a person attests that he or she has consulted with and received independent legal advice from a lawyer on a matter, in this case a marital agreement.  The lawyer giving the advice must be independent, meaning that the lawyer is not personally involved in the matter, and the lawyer is not acting for or advising any other party who is involved in the matter.

The purpose of the Certificate is to ensure that a person understands the nature or consequences of the marital agreement, and that he or she is acting voluntarily and not under duress or compulsion.  By executing such a Certificate, the person may later be prevented from claiming that he or she did not understand the marital agreement, or the consequences thereof.
