Instead of handling contested or litigated divorces, our firm focuses on
helping spouses who are seeking an uncontested, no-fault divorce. While
we may be the home of the cheap, “quickie” divorce, there’s
nothing second rate about our services.
While we’re big advocates of a fast,
no-fault, mutual consent
divorce, we do not promote that our clients obtain a divorce without a settlement
agreement. A settlement agreement is a legally-enforceable agreement between
two divorcing spouses. Meaning, it will stand up in court.
settlement agreement addresses important issues, such as what will happen to your children,
who will keep what property, and who will pay which debts after the divorce
While a divorce attorney can prepare a settlement agreement before, during,
or after a divorce, we recommend that the spouses enter into a settlement
agreement before the divorce is finalized.
Why Reach an agreement before the divorce is final?
Sure, you may be in a hurry to get divorced, but we don’t recommend
rushing the divorce and putting the settlement agreement off “for
another day.” You and your spouse may be on the same page about
the divorce now, but afterwards, disagreements over
child custody, and debts may arise.
When you anticipate these potential setbacks before they arise and address
them in a settlement agreement, you save yourself a lot of headache and
frustration. You may even be saving yourself a few trips back to court
(not to mention the expense) by getting it all in writing
before your divorce is final.
We Prepare Settlement Agreements
As Pennsylvania no-fault divorce attorneys, one of our main services is
preparing settlement agreements for our clients. We have the knowledge
and experience to help you create a proposal for your spouse regarding
child custody, visitation, and property distribution.
If your spouse has disagreements with one or more aspects of the proposal,
or if they’d like to incorporate their suggestions, we’d be
glad to go back to the drawing board and make the necessary changes until
we reach an agreement that you both are satisfied with.
Even if you and your spouse have already made verbal agreements about your
children and property, we’ll help draw up a written agreement so
you can memorialize those agreements in a legally-enforceable legal document.
