A property settlement agreement (PSA) is a contract between spouses that outlines each party’s rights and responsibilities. If either party does not follow through with the agreement, the court may intervene.
This flexible document is an indispensable feature of any uncontested divorce. An agreement can also bring an end to any litigation on contested divorce issues such as alimony or child custody. At the law firm of MacDowell Law Group, P.C., our family law attorneys can effectively negotiate favorable terms on your behalf.
Helping You Get the Most Out of Your Agreement
Our experience with the preparation, review and revision of property agreements can make the difference between an early resolution of outstanding issues and expensive and time-consuming divorce litigation.
A property settlement agreement can either be comprehensive in scope to resolve all of the issues in a marriage dissolution, or it can reserve certain issues for further negotiation or litigation. Either way, it can be a useful tool for identifying the matters you and your spouse can agree on, those you will need to get more information about and those that a judge may have to decide.
