When you’re separating from your spouse, you need to know that the choices you make won’t disrupt your future and that your rights are being protected. Couples who are separating might have worked out an arrangement on specific topics, but it’s always in your best interest to obtain a written agreement that clearly outlines the agreed upon arrangement.
Basic legal requirements of a separation agreement include:
- Written documentation.
- Parties involved who are married and not divorced.
- Notarized signatures.
- Fully resolved claims.
At the Law Office of W. Gregory Duke, we help our clients understand the importance of negotiating for and documenting an accurate separation agreement. If you’ve already made arrangements with your spouse, our team can review and make sure everything you need is covered. If needed, we can help you negotiate terms to obtain a strong separation agreement.
