Why it is Important to Have a Written Agreement?
It's important if you need to provide proof of the date that you separated. A marital separation agreement leaves no doubt about the specifics of your marriage relationship and how you would like your property divided.
Your agreement will also help you settle issues of child custody and support, spousal support, responsibility for debts, taxes and other important issues. Our easy-to-use forms make this task simple and fast to complete.
Finally, to protect both parties, it is better to have a clear written agreement rather than rely on verbal agreements.
Do I Need a Lawyer to Write My Marriage Separation Agreement?
No, couples may fill out their own marital separation agreement without the help from a lawyer. However, in some situations, it may be wise to consult with an attorney or have them review your agreement if you have a complex situation.
Separation agreements are recognized in all states. We offer attorney-drafted marital separation agreements for couples with and without children.
According to the Family Legal Advisor: "The law has generally maintained that if you and your spouse are actually separated, and you no longer live together as husband and wife, any marriage separation agreement you make with each other that is fair, and that provides for the support to the wife, is legal and binding."
Even if you are planning on using an attorney, experts suggest at least putting together the basics of your marital separation agreement before your visit. You will be better informed, well-prepared, and you could save a considerable amount of money on legal fees.
