Planning Ahead Can Avoid Contentious Litigation

When a relationship has come to an end and you are planning to separate, it is important to plan for the future. Separation agreements can avoid substantial litigation and the anxiety associated with it by defining the individual interests of each partner in property should your relationship end in divorce.

At the Brandon Family Law Center, LLC, founding attorney Mary L. Greenwood and her team have more than 30 years of family law experience. Our lawyers will help walk you through the process, protecting your interests along the way.

What Is A Separation Agreement?

These agreements are useful for couples who are planning to separate and want to predetermine property issues, even though they will stay married for name and benefit purposes. They operate on the basic understanding that married couples can keep some things separate but also move forward in equal and fair positions.

Florida law does not require a couple to be separated or even to live apart before they are divorced. Separation agreements are voluntary agreements that couples enter into when they want to set up the terms of their separation or divorce but are not yet ready to be divorced.
