Separation Agreements

Separation Agreement Attorney in La Mesa, CA

Skilled Separation Counsel in El Cajon & Lemon Grove

A separation agreement is a legal contract between both spouses that outlines all aspects of a separation. The agreement gives both parties clarity on several areas of their lives while they remain separated. As a La Mesa family lawyer with well over two decades of experience, I can help you draft a separation agreement with your spouse. When it comes to your separation agreement, you want to make sure that every area of import is discussed and agreed upon, which is why it is important that you seek the services of a seasoned attorney.

Important areas that are addressed in a separation agreement may include:

  • The children's place of residence
  • The amount of time that each parent will spend with the children
  • How bills and credit cards will be paid during the separation
  • Possible child support and spousal support
  • The management of joint assets, such as bank accounts and investments
  • Whether any property will be divided or sold during the separation
  • Whether or not post-separation income will be considered separate property

When Will I Need a Separation Agreement?

You can draft a separation agreement with your spouse both before and after you begin the divorce process. A separation agreement is legally binding and can be amended at any time if both parties agree to the changes. If you or your spouse decide to file for divorce, the separation agreement can be attached to the divorce papers. If the agreement is incorporated into the decree, it becomes a court order. If the agreement is not incorporated, it becomes a legal contract between both spouses.

Make sure your interests are protected with a clear and legally sound separation agreement. I serve clients across La Mesa, Lemon Grove, El Cajon, and the surrounding San Diego communities, and I am dedicated to using my knowledge as a family law attorney to help you through this complex and challenging time.
