Come To A Decision That Is Best For Everyone With A Separation Agreement
Many people come into the separation and divorce process hopeful that they can reach an agreement with their spouse rather than having to endure the cost and stress of litigation. Even in highly contested cases, a majority of cases in family law are resolved through written separation agreements, including many cases that are initially filed as contested matters with the court.
At Hirsch & Ehlenberger, P.C., we have decades of experience drafting separation agreements, ranging from the simple to the highly complex. While we are based in Reston, our experience in courts throughout Northern Virginia, including Fairfax County, Loudoun County, Prince William County, Arlington County, and Alexandria City allows us to advise our clients on potential court-ordered outcomes if they do not reach a negotiated agreement.
Your Agreement Will Cover All Divorce Matters
Marital settlement agreements (sometimes also called property settlement agreements) contain provisions addressing all issues between spouses, some of which include:
- Child custody
- Child support
- Spousal support
- Health insurance
- Life insurance
- Division of property such as real estate
The process of reaching a separation agreement can vary from case to case depending on the needs of the client and the issues involved. In some cases, the agreement can be negotiated through lawyers, coordinating with clients via email and a few in-person meetings. In other cases, we find that it is helpful to move the process along by meeting with the opposing party and their attorney.
