We help our clients prepare prenuptial or post-nuptial agreements in order to prepare for unforeseen circumstances. The agreements we draft assist our clients to protect property in the event of a divorce. The agreements may be as simple or comprehensive as the parties wish.
Our attorney work hard to craft separation agreements that are unique to each case, and work for both parties. A separation agreement is a settlement agreement of the parties, and it is signed and filed with the Court. A Separation Agreement is your rule book for how to conduct yourself after your divorce. Your separation agreement will cover how your real estate, assets, debts, and personal property will be divided. Your Separation Agreement can also cover any agreements regarding the allocation of parental responsibilities if there are minor children in your family.
As of May 1, 2013, the domestic relations laws and statutes apply to the legal termination of a civil union. Parties that have a civil union can now seek a dissolution (divorce), declaration of invalidity (annulment), legal separation, child custody, allocation of parental responsibilities, parenting time, child support, property division, and maintenance, just as married spouses would.
