What is a marital separation agreement?

Follow Us

A marital separation agreement divides a couple’s property and spells out their rights and obligations regarding alimony and child custody.  It can be drawn up before or after you have filed for divorce – even while you are still living together.

This agreement is not necessary if there is no property, children or debts involved.  However, the agreement leaves no doubt about details and sometimes it is best to have everything in writing than rely on verbal understandings.

If you do have a marital separation agreement, it should be attached to the divorce papers – making it a court order, enforced by the court’s contempt powers.
