The expanded services were initiated to provide married partners with legal solutions to safeguard their economic status and protect assets.
“While negotiating a marriage contract runs contrary to most people’s ideal of a romantic relationship as it necessitates contemplating dissolution, it is still a prudent and practical move that establishes and defines both partners’ rights,” says Ivan Steele.
Marriage contracts, otherwise known as prenuptial or postnuptial agreements, or cohabitation agreements for non-married common-law couples, help limit financial exposure if the marriage becomes unsuccessful. Ivan Steele explains that marriage contracts are suitable for couples who have significant discrepancies in income and wealth. Similarly, individuals who want to protect their business investments, inheritance, and real estate properties can also benefit from these agreements.

Furthermore, Ivan Steele Law can draft contracts that would shield the client from any increase in the value of property owned at the date of marriage. Contracts can also be used to clearly determine ownership of the matrimonial home and any property purchased during the marriage. Moreover, clients are protected from pre-marriage debt, financial issues, or loans their spouse may have incurred.
At Steele Law, prenuptial agreements can be drafted to offer married couples the liberty to modify or even eliminate spousal support based on their concerns and values.
The practice also offers legal services that process applications for permanent residence in Canada for husbands, wives, or common-law partners of Canadian citizens or permanent residents.
According to a satisfied client, “My experience with Mr. Steele was the best. I always hated dealing with lawyers, but now I am sure that if I needed anything else, I will come back to this firm. Mr. Steele took care of my divorce, sponsorship of my partner, her work permit, and our wills. On top of the good service, they also had the best prices.”
