Settlement agreements may go by many names - such as postnuptial agreement, marital settlement agreement, and property settlement agreement. The purpose of a settlement agreement is for a married couple to come to terms on their rights and obligations. Our team at K. Dean Kantaras, P.A. assists clients in these agreements. Frequently used as a precursor to a divorce, these agreements are a way to have a couple work out their differences over as many issues as they deem appropriate. They can be utilized effectively to settle many contentious issues.
Settlement agreements differ from prenuptial (or antenuptial) agreements. These are agreements that are entered into prior to marriage when a couple has not yet acquired any marital assets. Be sure to contact a Clearwater family lawyer from our firm to discuss your options!
Parties must include any issues in their settlement agreement. The only requirement is that issues covered not be illegal or against public policy. Parties need to have full and honest disclosure of assets and liabilities for the settlement agreement to be enforceable. Absent fraud or coercion, a settlement agreement can be expected to win approval of the court.
