Marital Settlement Agreement
A marital settlement agreement is a document that specifies the terms and conditions of the divorce. These terms often include division of property and assets, division of debts, spousal support, child support, and payment of attorney's fees.
Marital settlement agreements come with some advantages - they are more efficient, less costly, can eliminate the need for the spouses to go to court, and clearly lay out the terms of the divorce. The parties and their attorneys often use mediation to discuss and work through the terms of the marital settlement agreement. After the agreement is completed and entered into, it is treated like a contract and is legally binding. Marital settlement agreements are usually filed with the final judgment. If the parties cannot agree upon the terms of the marital settlement agreement, then the parties will likely have to litigate the issues in court.
