Although you may no longer want to live with your soon-to-be former spouse, communication is still needed. In fact, couples that can reach agreement without the court’s involvement will be able to save themselves both time and money.

A separation agreement is one affordable option. This is a legally binding contract, signed by both spouses, that resolves many of the issues that must be formally addressed in a divorce. The issues may include property division, debt and many child-related matters.

Our law firm has helped many clients start a conversation about separation agreements. Instead of turning all of the decision-making over to the court, a couple can take many aspects of their divorce into their own hands.
