When a couple decides to part ways, they may find themselves wondering whether – and how – to set parameters governing their relationship. This is where a separation agreement help can.
Separation agreements set standards and guidelines for couples regarding issues like spousal support, property distribution, child custody, and child support. They are enforceable contracts that can become court orders, so before you enter one, it is important to be aware that you can unknowingly lose your right to change some of the terms once the agreement has been signed. There are a few exceptions, for instance, with terms about child custody and child support.
Drafting a separation agreement that adequately protects both parties’ rights requires the intervention of a skilled divorce attorney. Contact us to learn more about how our team can help you protect your rights.
