Gainesville Marriage Settlement Agreement Attorneys
A marriage settlement agreement (MSA) is a simplified divorce process that enables couples to reach an agreement on the terms of their marriage dissolution. At the law firm of Arroyo & Talbert, P.A., our Gainesville lawyers help guide couples through the MSA process and can help enforce the terms of an agreement if one party is failing to comply with agreed-upon conditions.
What Terms Can An MSA Cover?
An MSA covers all of the same conditions and terms as a divorce settlement, including:
An MSA should not be confused with prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements. These agreements are only entered into when a marriage is not being dissolved, an MSA is negotiated when a marriage comes to an end.
Is An MSA Right For You?
An MSA is not right for everyone. These agreements work best when parties are still on cordial speaking terms, and both parties desire an amicable divorce proceeding. An MSA is not the right option when certain terms, such as child custody, are hotly contested or when couples are emotionally contentious. Our attorneys can review your situation and let you know whether an MSA is the right fit for your situation.
Enforcing the Terms of an MSA
In Florida, an MSA is treated as a binding contract, and all parties are expected to adhere to the terms and conditions of the agreement. If your ex-spouse is not complying with or otherwise violating the terms of your agreement, we can bring your case before the court to assert your rights.
