Customer Question

My son, a US citizen living in California, is to marry his Canadian (Quebec) fiance in Montreal on 7/25. His fiance's father is insisting on a marriage agreement under the matrimonial regime of separation as to property (there are family shares in a private company) and has a lawyer involved. How can my son get legal advice on whether or not to agree to the proposal (which he doesn't have yet)? Or on what to propose as an alternative? His fiance is essentially uninvolved. The two of them intend to spend ~6 months of each year in the US and Canada so at the moment there are no immigration issues.

He will need to consult with a family lawyer in Quebec. He would take the drafted marriage contract and a list of his assets and debts and consult with the lawyer.
