Separation agreements in New Jersey divorces

Courts can incorporate fair separation agreements into the final divorce decreeFor spouses who are able to discuss matters attending the end of their marriage openly, presenting the court with a signed and notarized separation agreement might make divorce easier. However, for a court to accept your separation agreement, you and your spouse must first address all relevant issues in writing. Experienced New Jersey divorce lawyer Anthony Carbone can provide you with the guidance and aggressive advocacy you need during this stressful period.

Separation agreements must resolve all of the issues a court would ordinarily consider when hearing a divorce case. These issues include, but aren’t limited to:

A separation agreement isn’t the same as a divorce decree. The judge will review the separation agreement you and your spouse drafted to ensure that it addresses all issues relevant to the end of your marriage and fairly distributes all rights and responsibilities. After reviewing the agreement, the judge might decide to allow the terms you and your wife agreed upon to be included in the court order terminating your marriage.

Though the open talks to draft a separation agreement might reduce the tension that often accompanies end of marriage proceedings, many of the issues you and your spouse will discuss can be complicated. Our New Jersey divorce lawyer has over 25 years of experience counseling clients through this rigorous process.
