Marital Settlement Agreements
What is a Marriage Settlement Agreement in California?
When divorce becomes necessary, certain things like property division, child custody, and spousal support will have to be decided. More often than not, couples hire Los Angeles divorce attorneys to help them through the process of reaching a marital settlement agreement because it can be difficult to do this without the proper legal background.
A marital settlement agreement is a legal document that outlines how a couple’s property is to be divided upon the dissolution of their marriage. A marital settlement agreement may also address such issues as child custody, child support, spousal support, and any other special arrangements that need to be defined in a document for legal purposes.
