Guiding Clients through a Separation Agreement
If you and your spouse are planning to separate or have already done so, it is in your best interests to draft a legally-binding separation agreement. This written contract can be enforced by the courts if your former partner fails to comply with its terms and conditions.
Campagna Johnson Mady, P.C., is experienced in drafting separation agreements, which may then be incorporated into divorce judgments. Our attorneys have drafted and filed such agreements for clients in all types of situations, from simple separations without children to separations involving complex financial, business, or child custody and visitation issues.
What is a Separation Agreement?
A separation agreement consists of a detailed written contract between spouses which delineates how issues such as child custody, visitation rights, spousal support, division of marital property, and all other marital matters will be handled and arranged.
When the agreement is properly written, signed and notarized, it becomes a binding agreement that can be legally enforced if one of the spouses fails to comply with its terms.
A separation agreement can later be included in a divorce decree, in an uncontested action for divorce, saving extensive litigation costs.
