I receive many calls from potential clients who tell me that they are ready to file for an Uncontested Divorce.
When I ask some basic questions regarding property and retirement accounts, sometimes it becomes clear that it would be best to prepare a Separation Agreement so that all potential issues, such as property ownership, debt division, tax issues, child support, and custody, etc. are resolved prior to filing for divorce.
It is also a very good idea to have a Separation Agreement even if you are separating and are not sure if you will end up filing for divorce. You need to be protected so that you are not arguing over every issue that may arise. An Agreement will resolve the issues so you can move on with your life without constant disagreements.
