A Separation and Property Settlement Agreement allows a client to maintain personal control over the outcome of his or her situation.
It is a detailed contract which contains an agreement based on the rights and obligations of both the husband and the wife with respect to all issues related to the marital relationship.
This may include custody of the children, child support, visitation, division of the marital property, health insurance, debts, retirement, and any other issues that have arisen as a result of the marriage.
Benefits of Separation Agreements
Through such an agreement, clients meet their objectives in a manner that takes less of an emotional toll on themselves and their families than seeking the court’s help through a divorce case. In addition, out of court settlements are far less expensive than seeking the court’s assistance to resolve the issues.
