Raleigh, NC Family Law Attorneys Discuss Separation Agreements
Family Law Lawyers Can Help Tailor a Separation Agreement to Control the Outcome of Your Divorce
A separation agreement is a cost effective way for two reasonable people to divide their marital property, provide support for a dependent spouse, and set out their agreements about what rights and responsibilities will exist after separation.
In most circumstances, I highly recommend trying to negotiate a separation agreement before resorting to litigation. It causes less stress on you and your family and keeps your personal business private. In a Separation Agreement, you and your spouse are in control of what happens. You don’t have a stranger making decisions that affect your lives. The importance of a good separation agreement cannot be over-emphasized.
There are some websites that allow you to draft your own separation agreement with a form, without an attorney. That is a huge mistake. I have tried to help clients afterwards who have had to fight in court because of the gaps and holes in these agreements. Without the assistance of an attorney who practices family law in North Carolina and who is experienced in family law litigation, you could wind up with an agreement that is not enforceable or that does not protect you. You could even be taken advantage of by your spouse. Don’t take that kind of risk. I have the experience and the skill to draft a separation agreement that will protect you and benefit you. Call me and we will set up an appointment to discuss your situation and determine what is best for you.
