What to Include in a Marital Settlement Agreement

Couples navigating an uncontested divorce may find it in their best interests to collaborate on a marital settlement agreement. When creating an MSA, you will have to disclose all information about your marriage, your assets and property, any debts you owe, and tax considerations.

Your marital settlement agreement should outline every aspect of your divorce, including decisions about:

Keep in mind that there are certain restrictions on MSAs. For example, a parent cannot waive their child support obligation in an MSA. You should also note that courts carefully review marital settlement agreements before approving them. Family courts reserve the right to override certain decisions made in marital settlement agreements. Courts may, for example, override a custody arrangement if they feel it is in the child’s best interest.

The Benefits of a Marital Settlement Agreement

Many couples find marital settlement agreements to be a simple and straightforward way to work through and finalize their divorce.

By creating a marital settlement agreement, you can:

  • Save time
  • Save money
  • Avoid the hassle of litigation
  • Resolve your divorce amicably and maintain a relationship with your ex-spouse

If you are considering a marital settlement agreement, it is wise to retain a lawyer who can review your agreement and ensure that it comprehensively protects your rights and reflects your best interests.
