Marital Settlement Agreement

A Marital Settlement Agreement is a written document that outlines the divorcing spouses’ rights and agreements regarding property, support and children. All forms are signed by both spouses and witnessed by a notary public. The issues that must be resolved by the spouses and outlined in the Marital Settlement Agreement include:

  • Division of assets and other property
  • Repayment of debt and monies owed to creditors
  • Alimony, child support, custody

In a no-fault divorce, the judge will not decide any of these issues for you. These issues are solved voluntarily between the spouses.
