Separation Agreements Can Help You Avoid Stress and Financial Expense
In North Carolina, a married couple must live separate and apart for one year before a divorce can be granted. A separation agreement can resolve issues such as child custody, child support, living arrangements, spousal support, property division and other issues. Your lawyer can help you negotiate an agreement that meets the unique needs of you and your family.
A separation agreement can resolve all issues outside of a courtroom. By negotiating, drafting and signing a separation agreement, you and your spouse can retain control and avoid having a judge make all of your decisions for you.
In fact, the more you and your spouse are able to resolve issues through negotiation and agreement, the less you will pay in terms of stress and financial expense.
