What is a Marital Settlement Agreement?


Divorces can take a lot out of you, especially when trying to balance your regular responsibilities and trying to sort through your divorce proceeding. While many divorces end up being complicated and contentious, other divorces take a much easier path. There are certain agreements that can help your divorce get settled in a much more efficient manner. A marital settlement agreement works as a master plan that organizes all the various parts of divorce into a comprehensive agreement. From parenting plans for your children, child custody issues, alimony agreements, child support agreements, division of property, and more, a marital settlement agreement is an overview of the negotiated terms of a divorce. Our family law attorneys in Boca Raton, Florida can assist you in putting together a marital settlement agreement so you get the most out of your divorce.

Why Should I Get a Marital Settlement Agreement?

Simplicity is the name of the game. A marital settlement agreement simplifies the divorce process and actively makes you and your soon-to-be-ex, a team. Working together with your spouse to come to terms with a divorce can not only help you maximize your time and money but can also provide you with peace-of-mind and help ease your child from the emotional burdens of divorce.

Is a Marital Settlement Agreement Really Necessary?

Although a marital settlement agreement is not required, it can make your life easier in both the short term and the long run. Because the terms of your divorce are written down and made official, there is no uncertainty about what terms were agreed upon later on should one party or the other seek a modification to an agreement.
