DIVORCE LAW

UTILIZING A MARITAL SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT WHEN DIVORCE OCCURS

Unfortunately, many divorce proceedings go through the court process and result in burnt bridges and bitter feelings. At K. Kelso Law, we construct a marital settlement agreement (MSA), a contract defining the terms of the couple’s divorce. A marital settlement agreement is mutually agreed upon by both parties and can smooth the process and avoid miscommunication in the divorce. An MSA thoroughly details each aspect of the dissolution of marriage, such as child custody and support, spousal support, and distribution of shared property and assets.

PREPARING FOR DIVORCE WITH A PRENUPTIAL AGREEMENT (PRENUP)

With approximately 50% of marriages resulting in divorce or separation, each participant should hope for the best but prepare for the worst. Setting up a prenuptial agreement before marriage can make it easier to create a marital settlement agreement (MSA) if a divorce occurs. A prenup lists all of the property, assets, and debts each person brings into the marriage and details the distribution and rights if the marriage ends. The divorce process becomes easier, cheaper, and less painful if a prenup is put in place before marriage.

POSTNUPTIAL AGREEMENTS IF
DIVORCE IS UNCERTAIN

A postnuptial agreement is a great option for couples who may be struggling with their marriage, but intend to remain married. This differs from a marital settlement agreement because an MSA is for couples who are planning on divorcing or already have.
