Folsom Marital Agreement Attorneys

Lay Out the Terms of Your Divorce

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

Our Folsom marital agreement attorneys at the Law Office of Tiffany L. Andrews, P.C. can help you work through the process to create and implement a comprehensive marital settlement agreement. We fight to protect your rights and your best interests while ensuring that the process is as smooth and stress-free as possible.

Why Establish a Marital Settlement Agreement?

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.

Protect Your Assets with a Marital Agreement

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
  • Minimizing potential conflicts during a divorce
  • Providing a clear roadmap for asset division

Our experienced Folsom marital agreement attorneys understand the complexities of family law and can help you draft a comprehensive agreement that meets your unique needs. Contact the Law Office of Tiffany L. Andrews, P.C. today to schedule a consultation and protect your future.

  • “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.

  • “Divorce & Separation Advice Session”
    I needed help with a legal document. Tiffany Andrews answered my questions, gave me advice about possible changes to protect myself and also provided possible consequences of putting in or leaving out certain items. What really impressed me is if I interrupted her at any time, she stopped talking to listen. She was really listening and making sure she understood what I was asking. I am super impressed with this service and her.

  • “Attorney With Compassion”
    Working with Tiffani Andrews Law office was a godsend. After struggling for a bit to get legal assistance, I found Brenda. She showed a great deal of empathy to me as I was unfamiliar with the California legal process, and had the need to get legal assistance as soon as possible for a divorce and child custody case. Her guidance and handoff to Stephanie could not have been more helpful and beneficial. I would recommend this office for all the obvious reasons, but also for their efficiency and clear value for the client. Tiffani Andrews Law has my complete trust.
