Separation Agreements

Charlotte Separation Agreement Lawyer

Resolving Common Dissolution Issues

All the issues related to the dissolution of your marriage can be handled via an order issued by the court or through what we call a separation agreement. While commonly referred to as a separation agreement because it contains language memorializing your date of separation, there is so much more that can be included in this agreement.

A couple separating or divorcing can include terms regarding child custody, child support, property division, and spousal support in their separation agreement. In this event, what we routinely call a separation agreement is called a separation, property settlement, child custody, child support, and spousal support agreement.

Why Obtain a Separation Agreement?

It is advisable that you and your spouse make every attempt to resolve your dissolution issues through a separation agreement. This is usually the most amicable and cost-effective way of deciding how to handle matters such as child custody, child support, property division, and spousal support.

Consult with an Experienced Lawyer from Coggin Law

You should never sign a separation agreement without first consulting with a reputable attorney who can review the content with you, explain the consequences of certain provisions, and make recommendations for improvement so as to provide clarity and protect your legal rights.

A good portion of the cases we handle are related to issues associated with separation agreements that were either poorly drafted, lacked clarity, or failed to include the necessary terms and conditions for everyone involved. We can help you protect your parental and marital rights and obligations as a parent and a spouse.

We will then assist you in negotiating the terms of your separation agreement, placing a premium on achieving your goals, preserving your assets for your future, and ensuring that the details of your role as a co-parent are firmly established.

After, we will then draft a comprehensive separation agreement on your behalf. We strive to exceed our client’s expectations in terms of content, detail, and thoroughness during this step. We will stand by you all the way through the execution of this agreement, offering you the advice, attention to detail, and responsiveness you deserve as you navigate this emotional period of your life.
