Marital settlement agreements become an enforceable component of a final divorce decree and must be carefully drafted to anticipate all potential conflicts. For many people, a main concern regarding divorce is how to move through the process as quickly and painlessly as possible. The emotions and stress associated with the split are difficult enough to shoulder without it becoming a bitter, drawn out courtroom battle. For this reason, many people turn to a marital settlement agreement to help move the process along as quickly as possible. In an uncontested divorce, a marital settlement agreement is used t o help both parties settle their issues and spell out the different terms of the divorce.
As a practicing divorce lawyer, my office drafts marital settlement agreements (“MSA’s”). We need to sit down and craft them within the bounds of the law and carefully review what’s good and what’s not.
With the help of Lozano Law Offices, you can sit down and discuss with your spouse such issues as child custody, parenting plans, visitation, child support, spousal support and property division. By working together, instead of handing your future over to the decision of the court, you are able to stay more involved and have more of a say in the final outcome. A marital settlement agreement is not a divorce filing, and is not an official court judgment. If, however, it is well-thought out and it adequately covers all aspects of the divorce, it will often be incorporated into the final judgment.
