Fully Resolving All Divorce Issues

A marital settlement agreement is a written document that fully resolves all issues in a divorce. To create a marital settlement agreement, you and your spouse will need to determine:

  • How to equitably divide your property
  • Who will have custody of the children and how much support is necessary
  • Whether alimony is appropriate and, if so, how much
  • Any other issues involved with your divorce

To create a valid property settlement agreement, you and your spouse must fully disclose all relevant information so that each party to the agreement is able to make sound decisions.
