What is a marital separation agreement?

A marital separation agreement is a written contract that divides marital property, details your rights during this time, and details issues such as spousal support and custody.   It may be drawn up before or after you file for divorce.

If you decide to initiate divorce proceedings, the agreement can be attached to the divorce papers and will become part of the final judicial decree.  It then becomes a court order and is enforceable by the court.  If, you don’t attach it to the divorce papers, it remains an agreement between you and your spouse only.
