An Amicable Divorce

A marriage settlement agreement is a contract between married persons that stipulates how the divorce will be accomplished with regard to the following:

  • Division of property and debts
  • Spousal support
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Payment of attorneys’ fees

People who are planning to divorce often believe that they can create their own “marriage settlement agreements” through use of a “do-it-yourself-divorce” service or use of legal forms available on the Internet. There are risks involved in “doing it yourself” that representation by a well-qualified lawyer can prevent. For example, a judge may reject a marriage settlement agreement with demands that certain changes be made. An attorney can readily resolve such technicalities in a way that a layperson may be unable to accomplish without making costly errors.
