North Carolina Separation Agreements

A separation agreement is a contract between a husband and wife that starts the terms under which they will live separate and apart.  Separation agreements are typically how parties outline how their property will be divided, who will receive certain assets, who will be responsible for certain debts, how much alimony, if any, will be paid, if one party will receive a distributive award, what the ramifications are for violating the agreement, and the like.  Child custody and child support can be addressed through separation agreements, although they are often going to be resolved through Consent or Court Orders.

Ideally, a separation agreement must be tailored to a particular party or family's needs.  The timing of a separation agreement can be very important, as well, to ensure that a party does not otherwise waive his or her right to certain issues if the court is petitioned for an absolute divorce without having resolved those issues.  

It is not required to have an attorney involved in the negotiating or drafting of a separation agreement, but it is advisable, particularly when your spouse has an attorney involved.  It would be a waste of time and money if you draft a separation agreement that is considered improper or does not address all of the issues that you may be facing.  

If you are considering asking your spouse to sign a separation agreement, or if you have been asked by your spouse to sign one, please call an attorney at King & Rowe, PLLC to discuss the legal requirements and all of your options before finalizing the agreement.
