Our team is skilled in guiding our clients through conflict. One of the most common options for settling conflict around separation and divorce is a Separation Agreement and Property Settlement. This allows the parties to stay out of court.
Separation Agreements are contracts between a husband and wife that state the terms under which they will live apart. A Separation Agreement is important in that it sets the rules the parties will follow around the issues involved in their divorce. The Separation Agreement can govern issues such as spousal and child support, child custody, and the division of the couple’s property.
A Separation Agreement can resolve the legal issues that would otherwise be decided by a judge. The only thing a separation agreement can’t do is grant the absolute or uncontested divorce.
