If you are living in Pennsylvania and you’re researching a simple,

I work out property division without having an expensive divorce? Will
we need a
marital settlement agreement?

simple, affordable, no-fault divorces for only $219. If your spouse refuses
to get divorced, or if you anticipate a high-conflict divorce, unfortunately
we can’t help you. On the other hand, if your spouse is agreeable

Marital Settlement Agreements (MSAs)
What is a marital settlement agreement (MSA) exactly? It’s a written
document that two spouses agree upon; it outlines the details and terms
of their divorce. Usually, the judge incorporates the MSA into the final
judgement of divorce. Once this happens, the MSA is a legally-enforceable
document, just like any other court order.
What types of issues are addressed in an MSA?
Marital settlement agreements, otherwise known as “divorce agreements,”
are always put into writing and signed by both spouses. When coming up
with the terms of a marital settlement agreement, you want to give it
the respect it deserves. Put thought into every detail so you don’t
end up going back to court to change something that proved ineffective.
If you and your spouse can be on the same page about a cheap, no-fault
divorce, you’ve already been through half the battle. Not only that,
but you’re setting yourselves up for success. By agreeing to put
your heads together and reach a fair agreement, you’re reducing
stress, saving a lot of money, and ensuring a smooth transaction, versus
a litigated divorce, which is costlier and significantly more stressful
