Avoiding Litigation With Separation Agreements
At the end of a marriage, there are many different issues to consider. How you decide to resolve those issues, whether by agreement or through litigation, is one of the most important issues to consider. A separation agreement is a private agreement between spouses that allows parties to resolve all outstanding issues surrounding their separation and divorce. More importantly, it is a legally binding agreement that helps you move forward in such uncertain times. With the help of a skilled family law attorney, you can confidently make the decisions that matter.

What A Separation Agreement Offers
When spouses decide to separate, meaning that they are living in different residences, they can enter into a separation agreement that is a resolution of the outstanding issues. This is a comprehensive settlement for those going through a divorce, especially an uncontested one. For instance, a separation agreement can establish:
- Who pays which outstanding bills incurred during the marriage
- Whether one party will maintain your family home
- How you and your ex will manage child care and child support issues, including issues that they cannot address through the courts, like contributions to a child’s college or savings accounts
- Whether one party will pay spousal support and if so, for how long
A separation agreement establishes the terms of your divorce and so requires you to speak up firmly about your rights and take smart legal steps to protect you now and as you move forward. Our attorneys are fierce advocates who will take steps to protect your future.
