The goal of a marital settlement agreement is to avoid a costly trail and get the best outcome that suits each party. This is accomplished by clearly and concisely outlining the terms of your divorce.

Although creating compromises are not always ideal, the settlement agreement allows a person to have their voice heard and considered when going through the process of divorce. There are two different kinds of forms, one is a marriage settlement agreement with minor kids and the other one is without.

Who creates the marital settlement agreement and when?

An attorney will draft the agreement, which will outline all the agreed solutions to custody, placement, assets, debts, and liabilities prior to trial.

What topics are addressed in a marital settlement agreement?

  • Property
  • Personal Property
  • Retirement
  • Debts
  • Alimony / Maintenance
  • Child Custody
  • Child Placement
  • Child Support
  • Life Insurance
  • Health Insurance
  • Court Costs & Fees

I strongly recommend Attorney Genelle Johnson. I had other attorneys in a long custody battle who basically seemed indifferent to my conce4ns and actual outcome. Genelle truly cared about my case and the outcome and I'll tell you she is as tough as they come and very knowledgeable. She put me first and always answered my questions and concerns honestly, not just telling me what she thought I wanted to hear. She saved me alot of time, money and aggravation and I'm sure she'll do the same for you. If you're looking for an honest, hardworking and tough attorney, she's it.
