Marital Settlement Agreements
A marital settlement agreement is a contractual agreement between spouses that is used to settle issues surrounding a divorce or dissolution of marriage. A marital settlement agreement can be used to determine how property will be divided or resolve issues regarding children including child support, time-sharing, or parental responsibility. A marital settlement agreement is serious and can be legally binding. Careful consideration should be given before signing one. Do not give your spouse an unfair advantage and sign one before having it reviewed by an attorney who is in your corner. Contact Boca Raton divorce attorney Matthew D. Martin today at (888) 984-6487 before you sign to see if our firm can help you with a marital settlement agreement that protects your rights.
Should I sign a marital settlement agreement?
One benefit of participating in a marital settlement agreement is the elimination of many uncertain outcomes within the divorce process. The outcome of any case can never be predicted with complete certainty; however, you can maintain some control over your divorce proceeding through a marital settlement and reduce the chances of any potential legal surprises.
Do I need a Lawyer for a Marital Settlement Agreement?
