Separation & Property Settlement Agreements

Separation & Property Settlement Agreements

Going through a divorce is one of the most stressful life events. At Walsh, Becker & Rice, we do our best to help you resolve your issues with your spouse as amicably as possible. To that end, we help you prepare your own separation and property settlement agreement by negotiation instead of court intervention.

The agreement is a contract between you and your spouse which spells out the rights and obligations of each party. It may cover all issues, including property division, child custody, visitation and support, debt division, and alimony.

We put the agreement in writing and file it with the court. When the court approves the agreement, it becomes the court’s final divorce order. You each save on litigation costs because there are fewer court hearings to resolve issues you have resolved yourselves.

It is not as easy as it sounds, and takes the skill of experienced family law attorneys. Our attorneys at Walsh, Becker & Rice are skilled in negotiation and are committed to the best outcome for all their clients.
