Lakeland Marital Settlement Agreement Attorney

Resolving All Marital Issues Relating to Your Polk County Divorce

Reaching a Peaceful Solution and Marital Settlement

A marital settlement agreement involves any relevant marital issue relating to a divorce. It is the agreement that completely spells out the terms of the divorce for both spouses and helps rid any ambiguities. 

Often achieved through mediation, reaching a marital settlement agreement prior to court hearings is extremely important if you want to ensure that the court does not make decisions in the form of rulings on your behalf. Additionally, being able to reach amicable resolutions in divorce-related issues can also reduce the cost of your divorce significantly because it often takes costly litigation out of the equation.

Depending upon your specific situation, a marital settlement agreement may involve the following:

  • Child Custody & Visitation (“Parenting Plan & Timesharing”);
  • Child Support & Alimony Issues;
  • Division of Marital Property & Assets; and
  • Other Relevant Divorce-Related Issues.

How can Advocate Law Firm, P.A. help with your case?

It is important to note that even when a marriage settlement agreements has been reached between spouses while ending a marriage, the agreement is not legally binding until the court approves and enters the stipulations as a standing court order. In other words, if one of the spouses chooses to not follow the marital settlement agreement before it is made the standing court order, there is nothing the other party can legally do to have the marital settlement agreement enforced. It is therefore critical that you work with a skilled Bartow and Lakeland family law attorney who can represent your best interests and help craft a marital settlement agreement that is legally binding. My firm can help get it made into a standing court order. We offer services in English and Spanish.
