Legal Marital Agreements
When a marriage hits the rocks and the spouses are contemplating separation, there are numerous issues that need to be discussed and resolved. The most important issue prior to separation is determining which spouse should leave the marital residence. The major issues following the separation of married parties are, child custody, child support, alimony or waiver thereof, and property distribution. Leaving the marital residence is a complicated and important decision. Leaving the residence may be necessary for safety reasons, but if this is necessary, your decision as to whether or not to take the children with you will affect the custody outcome. A party should not leave the marriage and the residence without first consulting with an attorney to obtain all the information necessary to make that all-important first step.
