Marital Settlement Agreements
Just as any other court case might be settled between parties before the case goes to court, divorces can be settled in a similar manner. Whether a divorcing couple comes to an agreement on their own, through mediation or the collaborative law process, or through negotiations between their attorneys, a marital settlement agreement should be drafted in writing so there are no misunderstandings down the road.
It is important that marital settlement agreements be drafted properly to be accepted by the court. You will also want to ensure the agreement meets your needs before signing on the dotted line. Marital settlement agreements can be drafted at any time before the final judgment of divorce is entered.
