Comprehensive Divorce Agreements in Folsom

Even after a divorce, you and your partner will remain in each other’s lives and retain certain obligations regarding the former relationship – especially if you had children or significant amounts of property together. A marital settlement agreement lays out the terms of the divorce once it is finalized.

The provisions within these agreements may cover:

  • Child custody
  • Child visitation
  • Property and debt division
  • Confirmation of separate property
  • Spousal support
  • Attorney fees and costs

Benefits of a Marital Settlement Agreement in Folsom

Having a marital settlement agreement is not a prerequisite to obtaining a judgment for divorce.

However, it may be beneficial because a marital settlement agreement can:

  • Lay out all of the agreements in writing while limiting ambiguity if properly drafted by an attorney
  • Prevent you from going to court if you reach a full agreement on all issues in the divorce
  • Speed up the process so that you can avoid a long, drawn out, or costly trial

Marital settlement agreements can be formed at any time before the final judgment. They are generally incorporated as part of the final judgment.

Keep in mind that if a spouse has an open Department of Child Support case with the County, the Department of Child Support may have to approve the portion of your judgment as it relates to child support. We can keep a keen eye on the child support portion of your agreement to ensure that it is fair and suitable for both you and your child. This can improve your chances of approval from the Department of Child Support.

Asset Protection Through Marital Agreements in Folsom

A marital agreement, also known as a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, can provide peace of mind and protect your assets in the event of a divorce. By clearly outlining the division of property, finances, and other important matters, you can avoid lengthy and costly legal battles.

Benefits of establishing a marital agreement include:

  • Preserving your separate property
  • Clarifying financial responsibilities and obligations
  • Protecting business interests

  • “Professional and Effective”
    I retained Tiffany Andrews to accomplish my divorce and am pleased with the service provided. My ex-wife was very uncooperative at times and prolonged the divorce unnecessarily. Tiffany was able to move things along and eventually get her to complete her part of the necessary paperwork. Further, I am in the military and was deployed while the process was ongoing. Even though I was half a world away Tiffany and her staff were able to keep me abreast of the situation and worked with me to sign paperwork and keep things rolling. I would highly recommend Tiffany Andrews to those in need of legal services.

  • “Protected My Interests”
    Tiffany has been dealing with my divorce for going on 3 years. Just wrapped up last week. Unfortunately, that's how long my divorce took. But she stuck by and fought for me even though the divorce laws are skewed to basically screw me. In the end, we were able to get a final judgment that I was comfortable with. She was always reachable and responded timely. All in all, she is a great lawyer who will do what's in your best interest.

  • “Tiffany was there for me, even AFTER my case was filed.”
    Long Story short, My particular case started off as a Divorce & Child Custody case; but soon after Divorce papers were filed; I (a male) became a Victim of a brutal Domestic Violence from my Ex. Tiffany took care of all the necessary documents needed to finalize my Divorce & Child Custody case while I was hospitalized with multiple stab wounds & internal injuries. Tiffany helped & filed documents so that my children wouldn't be taken as wards of the state; & gave temporary custody to a familial relative while I recovered from my injuries. Not once did she leave my side as an attorney while I was in the hospital recovering from what my Ex-wife did... If I could recommend a Family Attorney to anyone in Northern California... I would recommend Tiffany Andrews; there is no doubt about this in my mind.

  • “Strongly Recommend! Goes above & beyond to help in the most difficult time!”
    I was referred to Tiffany Andrews by another attorney who was dismissed from my case due to a conflict of interest, I was not confident in handling the case on my own. I contacted her office for advice on possibly representing myself. I first spoke to her staff, Sara & she already knew about my situation so she scheduled me with Andrews. I met with Andrews for a consultation and was 100% certain that I wanted her to represent me after our visit. I noticed that she was very knowledgeable and was already informed about my case from the previous attorney, So immediately I signed & started a retainer. She immediately got started, then she gave me our game plan & was very informative on anything that I had to do to make things run smoothly, I was very impressed with how fast her & her staff took action. She has brought up other suggestions that are in the best interest of my case. I feel that Tiffany Andrews & her staff (Sara) go above & beyond & are very compassionate about my case & the safety of my children. I 100% recommend Tiffany Andrews & her amazing team to anyone who is dealing with Custody or Restraining Order!
