A Separation and Property Settlement Agreement allows a client to maintain personal control over the outcome of his or her situation.
A Separation Agreement is a detailed contract that 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, spousal support, division of the marital property, health insurance, debts, retirement, and any other issues that have arisen as a result of the marriage.

If an out-of-court settlement cannot be achieved satisfactorily, all clients receive strong advocacy in the court system by an experienced DC family law and divorce lawyer.
