What Should Be Included In A Divorce Agreement

By asking you simple questions, our sophisticated form builder creates a personalized legal divorce agreement tailored to your specific needs. In addition to the standard conditions, you can specify how you want to treat family allowances, visiting rights, tax exemptions, legal name changes, etc.! The next step is to discuss all the agreements you will have regarding your children. You need to decide whether sole custody, shared custody or shared custody is appropriate for your situation. Sole custody has always been the most common choice, but more and more divorced parents are opting for arrangements where children live with both parents: 50/50, 60/40 or whatever works for the individual family. If children live with one parent more than the other (e.B. 60/40), this person should be referred to as the “parent of primary residence” and the other parent as the “parent of a secondary residence”. A matrimonial settlement agreement (MSA) is a comprehensive written document that describes the entire agreement between you and your spouse regarding issues related to your divorce in New Jersey. It is important that this divorce agreement is detailed and includes everything it should. The document is presented to the court and the conditions it contains become directly the terms of your divorce decree. If the judge at the hearing considers that the divorce agreement is fair and there are no other issues to decide, he will grant your divorce.

If the divorce is contested by one of the spouses or the judge does not consider the divorce agreement to be fair, the process may take longer and you may need to attend multiple hearings. .
