Separation Agreements Lawyer
A Separation Agreement is a contract between you and your ex-spouse. It can document your rights and obligations after the relationship has ended.
You may wish to deal with issues involving property, child support, spousal support, decision making responsibility (custody) and parenting time (access) for your children.
Separation Agreements are negotiated. They do not require the court’s involvement.
Too often we see individuals who have prepared their own “homemade” agreements that leave one spouse in a worse position than the other. It is important to have a capable lawyer who prepares and provides advice on the agreement to ensure that your best interests are being served.
At Van Looyen and Fallon, we will guide you through your options to determine whether a Separation Agreement may be appropriate for you. Often, preparing an agreement can help you feel more in control of the process. It can also reduce the stress that being involved in litigation may bring you.
