Separation Agreement
Florida Family Law: Florida Separation Agreement

 

A separation agreement can be used as a precursor to the dissolution of marriage. Although the two parties named in the draft document are still married, the separation agreement will essentially contain all of the elements found in the final divorce agreement, such as alimony payments, child support requirements, custody and other related issues.

 

Legal Separation Agreements

Divorce is not something to be entered into lightly and many couples look for alternatives to divorce.

If divorce is an issue that is on the table, but both parties are interested in trying to patch things up or even take a break before they decide to follow through with a divorce, a separation agreement may be the answer.

 

During the course of a Florida divorce proceeding, alimony and/or child support payments are not due until the divorce is finalized. Sometimes, particularly when couples decide to live apart, one party may need financial support to take care of themselves and the children during this difficult transition. Separation agreements are a good way to gain temporary child support and spousal maintenance payments until a formal agreement is filed with the court.

 

Florida separation agreements can often do more than just secure temporary child support and alimony. They can also serve as less formal type of post-nuptial agreement.

 

If a couple can agree on certain aspects of property division or other issues related to a divorce, they can be worked into a separation agreement to be formalized later in the process.

 

A legal separation agreement can be a powerful tool for couples contemplating divorce, but want to take their time, temporarily live apart, or even give their marriage another try.

 

By having a legal separation agreement drawn up by an experienced family law attorney, the couple can focus on rebuilding their family and possibly salvaging the marriage. In the event that the marriage does not work, the couple can use the separation agreement as the framework for an uncontested divorce filing.
