Divorce Settlement Agreements Attorneys in Granite Bay, California
Quality Legal Services to Help You Make the Best Decisions
There are many important legal issues at stake during a divorce, including child custody, child support, property division, and spousal support in some cases. Even if the spouses do not agree on these issues at the outset of the case, most divorcing couples do eventually reach a settlement on these issues. To avoid litigating issues, a Marital Settlement Agreement must be prepared that outlines the spouses’ agreement regarding these issues. This agreement must be signed by both spouses and submitted for the judge’s approval.
Marital Settlement Agreements must be properly drafted and should include all of the important details of the agreement. If an important part of the agreement is left out of the agreement, it may not be possible to later change the agreement’s language. One of the spouse’s lawyers generally prepares the Marital Settlement Agreement while the other will review it and possibly make suggestions regarding language that should be changed in it. It is important to choose an experienced Roseville divorce attorney to help you with this process. He or she can draft the agreement or review it to ensure that your rights are properly protected.
Marital Settlement Agreement Basics in California
It is imperative that you understand all of the terms in the settlement agreement before you sign it. If you are confused about the language, always ask your attorney for clarification. If you are not comfortable with the terms of the settlement agreement, do not sign the agreement. The agreement may include timelines, such as calling for the immediate transfer of certain assets and property. Other terms may be ongoing, such as custody agreements or spousal support obligations. Some provisions may be subject to modification while others are not.
