Are you and your spouse thinking of divorce? Are you familiar with a separation
The first step in the process of divorce after the couple has negotiated
their “deal” is the drafting of a separation agreement. This
is a legal document that requires thought, discussions decisions, and
details about the management of different aspects and management of your
life moving forward.
In my divorce mediation process we will take a look at everything that
matters and make decisions on how important aspects of your life will
be legally defined. A separation agreement is a legally binding contract
that protects you and your children.
Let me explain a little bit about what your separation agreement should include:
- equitable distribution of marital property; who will receive what, who
will have title, who has exclusive occupancy; if sale of property will
occur; how the proceeds will be shared;
- equitable distribution as it relates to assets; bank accounts, stocks,
bonds, pensions, 401(k)’s, annuities, define how assets will be
allocated and split;
- who shall receive spousal support, whether there should be any, how much,
and for how long;
- provisions for children; custody; child support, visitation,
- health insurance;
- life insurance
For further explanation give me call so you can have an experienced divorce
attorney/mediator by your side as you make these important decisions.
With over 35’ years of experience I can provide insight, creative
solutions, understanding, and excellent legal skills to develop a solid
separation agreement that will help you avoid issues later.
