MARITAL SETTLEMENT AGREEMENTS AND SEPARATION AGREEMENTS
A Marital Settlement Agreement is a contract that resolves all property division, support and other economic issues associated with the dissolution of a marriage.
If the parties can agree on how to distribute their property and debt, a Marital Settlement Agreement can be created to settle economic claims. Alimony claims and other economic issues can also be addressed in these agreements. Parties have the option of resolving their economic differences by written agreement or they can choose to have the court make a decision. In most cases, court involvement is very expensive and not everyone will be happy with the ultimate result.
