Divorce Agreements

When spouses divorce, agreements will need to be drafted regarding any divorce-related issues such as asset distribution, alimony and child custody. The court prefers that ex-spouses work together to create these agreements whenever possible. Once an agreement has been reached, it is submitted to the court for approval and becomes part of the divorce settlement. Changing an agreement at a future point in time will require court approval, including a modification of child supportmodification of child custody and modification of spousal support.
