Sometimes when parties are contemplating divorce yet aren’t quite sure if that’s the direction they want to go at the time, they enter into a Separation Agreement. A Separation Agreement is like a divorce judgment but doesn’t hold the legal finality that a filed Divorce Judgment does. It’s much more informal than a Divorce Judgment. Additionally, a Separation Agreement does not necessarily need to be filed with the court. There is no fixed time for a Separation Agreement, except that of which the parties agree to.
Slingshot Legal Services can both assist with the preparation of a Separation Agreement, as well as mediate any issues between the parties that they do not agree on. Slingshot Legal Services can also assist the parties in proceeding forward with the divorce documentation to file with the court in the divorce proceedings, should the Separation Agreement and process fail or not be in the interest of the parties.
