Navigate Child & Spousal Support with Zeina
Section 3 and 7 Agreements
$350 to an agreement or 350 days to court?
If you and your ex are struggling to understand how support works (child or spousal) or agree to it, attend a Support Assessment Session where you will:
- Understand how support applies to your family
- Make decisions on payments, duration, and start date
- Agree on guidelines so you can manage your finances
At the end of the session, you reach an agreement that you can either shake hands on, or turn into a legal document.
Did you know that child support is two portions, Section 3 and Section 7?
That’s what our clients Sara and Adam did.
They thought court was their only option for dealing with child support. They had no idea the court process was so lengthy, as they had to attend 3 different court dates before booking the actual child support hearing – which was scheduled 6 months out and into the new year.
In the meantime, Sara was struggling to make ends meet as her income is not enough for her and their two kids. Adam felt he was in limbo. What is the judge going to order him to pay and will he be able to afford it?!
They signed up to our Child Support Session. It’s an hour and a half focused meeting with a mediator, wherein she provides their child support calculations, explains how Section 3 and 7 apply to them, and help them agree on the payments.
Sara and Adam cancelled their court date, each saving at least $5000 in legal fees. AND they now have a solid child support agreement they both feel comfortable with.
They can finally breathe.
