Divorce Settlements

Boca Raton Divorce Lawyer, Personal Injury & Civil Litigation Since 1984

In Florida, a divorce settlement agreement contains all of the terms and conditions of the parties and they have to follow those terms and conditions to avoid being in contempt of court. The terms include the equitable distribution of marital assets and debts, the child support and alimony obligations of the parties, and a number of other factors that the parties may agree to. Usually, any conditions regarding custody of children are not included in the divorce settlement agreement, but they are found in the parenting plan that is created by the parties. The parenting plan is attached to the divorce settlement as an exhibit so that it can be referenced within the text of the divorce settlement.

If you are going through a divorce, there are some matters that you and the other party may be able to negotiate so that the court doesn’t have to decide for you. With the help of your Florida divorce attorney, you can have effective guidance when it comes to negotiating matters so that you can agree to as many terms as possible.

Helping Reach Amicable Settlements

The divorce settlement gives the parties a method to reach an amicable settlement instead of having to go through further litigation. This is faster, more affordable, and it can be less stressful on the parties. Agreeing on terms can minimize conflict and this is something that can be good for minor children. The divorce attorneys and the parties work together to draft a divorce settlement that incorporates each of the terms and conditions that are agreed upon.

After everything is entered into the final settlement agreement, all the parties have to do is wait for the final Judgment of Divorce by the court.

In the event that the parties cannot agree on some of the terms, further litigation will occur on those matters and the divorce case will move forward as a contested divorce. It is at a contested final hearing where the court will adjudicate and decide the rights of the spouses.

Straightforward Advice

It is very important for each party to understand the impact of the divorce settlement and the binding effect that it has on both parties. When the terms are binding, the parties are subject to enforcement by the court in the event that any of the conditions of the agreement are violated. The court can compel compliance and the court can take further action if a party fails to comply. Any time you have a question regarding compliance, your Boca Raton family law attorney can advise you on such matters so that you have the advice that you need when you need it.
