Legal Counsel For Separation And Settlement Agreements
Once you and your spouse have decided to end or modify your marriage, the specific terms of your separation and settlement agreements are very important. The Law Office of Amy Sklar in Garden City, New York, can help you establish the arrangement you’re seeking, on subjects ranging from division of property to spousal support to child custody.
What You Need In A Separation Agreement
Legal separation is an option for married couples who need more space but do not want to permanently end their marriage by divorcing. By definition, couples living under a separation agreement must live in separate residences.
A separation agreement is a legal contract agreed to by both spouses, addressing subjects like division of property. In fact, separation agreements can set all the same rules laid out in a divorce agreement, with the important difference that a couple living under a separation agreement remains legally married.
Separation agreements are complex documents that can make a huge difference in both spouses’ lives, which is why it’s very useful to have an experienced attorney like Amy Sklar representing your interests when the agreement is drafted.
We’ll Write Your Stipulation Of Settlement
A stipulation of settlement, also known as a marital settlement agreement, is an important document in the divorce process. If you and your spouse can agree to terms before formal divorce proceedings begin, these can be listed in a stipulation of settlement and help you avoid the stress of a lengthy divorce process and trial.
