Marital Settlement Agreements
When possible, it is often recommended for spouses in a Pennsylvania divorce proceeding to discuss an amicable resolution and settlement of all claims. A marital settlement agreement (also known as a “property settlement agreement”) is a written agreement that provides the parties with an efficient means to resolving the issues of a divorce proceeding, such as the division of marital assets and liabilities, alimony, APL/support payments, child support, legal fees and other rights. Similar to prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, marital settlement agreements are considered to be final and binding upon the spouses and should be thoroughly discussed, negotiated and reviewed. Marital settlement agreements can also save the parties a significant amount of time and money since court proceedings are removed from the process.
Any marital settlement agreement should be drafted by a skilled and experienced family law attorney and filed with the court as part of the divorce proceeding. Oftentimes, the parties may not agree to one or more issues and court proceedings are necessary. The experienced family law attorneys at Williams Family Law, P.C., understand the importance for a spouse to have the assistance of an attorney throughout this process and are available to help.
