A marital settlement agreement is considered to be final and binding upon the spouses and should be thoroughly reviewed, discussed, and negotiated. The benefit of a settlement agreement is that it can save parties a significant amount of time and money since court proceedings are removed from the process.
The most common kinds of documents we can help you create are: prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements, and separation agreements. A prenuptial agreement can protect a house, business, professional practice, retirement accounts or inheritance that one party owns before marriage. Premarital agreements apply only to property, debts and voluntary settlements or spousal support. They cannot stipulate terms of child custody or waive child support. A postnuptial agreement is essentially the same except that it is entered at some point after the marriage has already occurred. Lastly, a separation agreement is similar to a divorce decree. This kind of agreement allows you to address almost every aspect of your separation, including child support and child custody, spousal support, and property division.
