Settlement Agreements | White Plains Divorce Lawyer

A settlement agreement is an important factor in any divorce. This agreement represents the resolution of all issues related to the divorce, including child custody, child support, alimony/maintenance, testamentary rights, and property division. The settlement agreement is usually incorporated, but not merged, in the judgment of the divorce, and is separately enforceable as a contract. This contract embodies the resolutions to any and all disputes that arise in relation to the divorce. Ms. Kusnetz is an experienced contract lawyer, and is experienced in the preparation of such settlement agreements.

Separation Agreements | Rockland County Divorce Lawyer

When spouses are considering divorce, a separation agreement may be a chosen option, and is one that avoids litigation. This contract covers all issues arising out of the divorce, including alimony, child custody, parental access, support and property division. If divorce becomes a reality, the separation agreement can be used in the divorce judgment as agreed-upon resolutions. Having a completed separation agreement can speed up the process and cut the cost of a divorce.

One year from the filing of the separation agreement, the divorce can be finalized. Do not hesitate to contact a lawyer at our office with any questions or concerns. One of the beneficial attributes of a separation agreement is that a spouse can continue to be covered by the other spouse’s health insurance plan until the judgment of divorce is entered.
