Property And Marital Settlement Agreements

Property and marital settlement agreements in Florida

A marital settlement agreement encompasses all the terms and conditions the parties have agreed on to settle a divorce. Marital settlement agreements are often reached at mediation, where the parties and their attorneys work together to draft the agreement. A marital agreement is a contract. Once signed, it is binding on the parties and subject to enforcement by the court. Our marital settlement agreement attorney at The Law Offices of Lawrence S. Katz, P.A. is skilled in negotiating and drafting settlement agreements. We listen to your needs and work to quickly achieve the best possible settlement for your situation.

What are the advantages of marital settlement agreements?

There are several advantages to resolving your divorce through a marital settlement agreement. If your case goes before a judge, the judge makes the decisions on the issues in controversy. On the other hand, parties who are both willing to negotiate in good faith are the masters of their own destinies. They can explore creative solutions to decide what is best for their children and in individual situations. Reaching an agreement also helps the parties resolve the case quickly and avoid the expense and emotional drain of protracted litigation.

Why do I need an attorney?

Marital settlement agreements are considered contracts, and absent a showing of fraud or other extenuating circumstances, a judge can enforce the terms of your agreement indefinitely. These agreements are usually lengthy and contain complicated legal language. A marital settlement agreement includes the final resolution of all material issues in a divorce, such as:

  • Property division
  • Debt division
  • Spousal support or alimony
  • Parenting and time-sharing
  • Child support

These issues can affect you, your children and your extended family for many years.

We can also assist you in enforcing the agreement if your spouse fails to abide by its terms, including the enforcement of child support and spousal support awards.
