Watch this video to learn more about what a separation agreement attorney can do for you during your split.
When a couple decides to call it quits on their marriage, they sign a legally binding separation agreement. The separation agreement outlines, among other things, how they will divide their joint financial obligations.
The agreement also touches on other commitments such as child support, custody, visitation, spousal support, etc.
Before the commencement of the divorce settlement, their respective attorneys, for consideration as a component of the judge’s ultimate divorce decree, may submit a separation agreement to the court. The separation agreement attorneys will do their best to ensure the following things:
The settlement is reasonable and fair to both stakeholders.
Both parties, without any coercion or pressure, signed the agreement.
Each party, in equal measure, retains that legal counsel from a dedicated attorney.
The separation agreement attorney’s responsibility is to represent each party in the separation agreement to ensure that both parties declare their assets and debts truthfully.
