When a marriage comes to an end, there are many issues that must be resolved. One way to resolve them is through a separation agreement between the spouses. A separation agreement in North Carolina can address and resolve all aspects of financial support, child custody issues and the equitable distribution of property. This written agreement serves as a private contract and settlement document between the spouses. Since it is legally binding, a separation agreement should be negotiated, prepared and reviewed by a qualified and experienced Charlotte separation attorney.

Separation agreements are not always appropriate in every situation. For instance, a separation agreement may not be practicable given the complexity of the issues involved, or if the tensions and conflict between the parties would make settlement negotiations futile. If the parties attempt to negotiate a settlement but cannot reach an agreement, or if a separation would not be appropriate, they may choose to file a lawsuit regarding any issue that has not been resolved.
You should seek counsel with an experienced attorney to discuss whether a separation agreement would be an appropriate resolution to your situation, and, if so, to advise you on the specific terms. Always consult with an attorney prior to signing any document presented to you by your spouse or your spouse’s attorney. The dedicated and effective Charlotte Family Law attorneys at Powers Law Firm PA are available to meet with you and negotiate, draft or review any proposed separation agreement.
