Divorce can have incalculable emotional effects on your family and come with financial implications that can make life uncomfortable. Before considering this final road many couples choose to exercise a Separation Agreement.

A Separation Agreement is simply a voluntary contract between a husband and a wife who wish to live separately. Separation Agreements can address all aspects of marriage dissolution including:

  • Alimony
  • Child Support
  • Custody
  • Property Division

Although a Separation Agreement may contain provisions for obtaining a divorce after a set period of time has passed, the agreement does not automatically lead to divorce. The Family Law Professionals at Cascade Law will draft the Separation Agreement specifically to the needs and wishes of our clients. This process can take much of the stress out of future considerations in advance of a divorce and allow couples time to process before any final decisions are made.
