Property Settlement Agreements

We can help you obtain a favorable outcome!

Say the words 'divorce court' and you'll find many couples heading for the hills. Divorce court is notorious for hosting lengthy court battles that don't always end happily for both spouses, but in years past, it tended to be the only viable option. Fast-forward several years and couples hoping to separate find themselves with options that greatly simplify the divorce process.

A Property Settlement Agreement (PSA) is one such option. Due to the power that a PSA has over your divorce and your future, it is recommended that you secure the representation of a Newark divorce lawyer from our firm. We can ensure that your rights are well-defended and give you the best possible chance at a successful resolution.

What is encompassed in a Property Settlement Agreement?

A properly constructed PSA can save you and your spouse from spending weeks quibbling over the minutia of your divorce. It also puts control back where it belongs – in your hands – by allowing you to have the final say-so.

The most effective PSAs include:

Each issue then delineates the rights that each spouse has. If you and your spouse can cooperate, you can draw up a PSA together along with your attorneys and present it to the court. The judge typically reviews the terms of your agreement and submits it as a formal divorce judgment.

Many couples benefit from allowing the court to merge their document into a judgment of divorce, rather than simply letting it stand alone as a separate contract. The former option allows for future modifications if the need arises.
