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.
