Validate Your Wishes with a Marital Settlement Agreement

Divorce court is notorious for putting spouses at odds, increasing the improbability of a favorable outcome. An MSA allows you and your spouse to work together, without the pressure of court, to arrive at a resolution that makes you both comfortable. Your agreement can address any number of issues that you feel demand a resolution before your divorce is final.

Marital settlement agreements commonly deal with all of the following:

Your MSA can be drawn up at any point before or after you file for divorce. When you’re ready, both parties can sign the document and bring it to court for a judge to review. At this point, the judge can incorporate it into your final divorce decree and authorize its terms as a binding court order.

An MSA is a weighty document that should not be taken lightly, particularly as the effects of it can last far into the future. Even if you and your spouse are on good terms, it is always better to put an experienced family law attorney in your corner. We can stand up for your rights and help you achieve the resolution you want.
