Marriage isn’t easy. With over 50 percent of marriages ending in divorce, it is clearly not unusual if you find yourself contemplating ending your marriage. Usually, the first step in doing so is beginning the separation process. Although it is not as final as divorce, going through a separation can be a very difficult and emotionally trying event in a person’s life. When a couple has decided that separation is their best option, some couples choose to make what is called a separation agreement. While there is no legal separation in Florida, you can enter into an enforceable contract or agreement. This type of agreement is a written contract between a couple that has to be signed by both parties and notarized. The agreement outlines specific terms of the separation, regarding things such as child custody, child support, alimony, and distribution of the marital property, and while it is similar to a divorce agreement, it must be carefully examined by a top-notch Florida divorce attorney to make sure that you are protected.
If you and your spouse are considering a separation, it is vital that you hire Leesburg separation attorney Jody L. Fisher to help during this process. A separation agreement can be a crucial first step in the divorce process, and should a divorce occur further down the road, a properly drawn up separation agreement will make the entire process faster and easier.
