The Purpose of a Separation Agreement in DC
When you and your spouse make the decision to separate and/or divorce in DC, if you have children, their welfare is one of your major concerns.
If you choose to resolve things amicably, hopefully, this will lead to a negotiated DC Separation Agreement. You can tailor specific provisions in your Agreement to determine custody and separate access schedules so that both you and your spouse will have regular access/visitation time with your children.
Moving forward and getting beyond the difficulties and resentments between you and your spouse so you can focus on the best interests of your children can be very emotionally challenging.
