Settlement Agreements — Marital And Custodial

Coming to a fair settlement agreement for a divorce and/or custody issues is important, and without consulting an attorney, you could end up with a settlement agreement that you do not fully understand, does not protect your rights or does not address issues that may arise in the future. The diligent attorneys at The Law Offices of Shipe & Bush, P.C., have years of experience advocating for individuals facing divorce and family law issues. We have negotiated countless settlements for our clients and are knowledgeable in drafting agreements or reviewing those drafted by other attorneys.

We take the necessary time to explain what needs to be addressed in a settlement agreement and how to go about negotiating an agreement. Our lawyers are results-focused and have a successful track record.

Marital Settlement Agreements

A Marital Settlement Agreement is a comprehensive document that addresses all aspects of your divorce. This can include property division, alimony, child custody, child support and other issues concerning children and more. A Marital Settlement Agreement is drafted after the parties reach agreement through discussion and negotiation. Our attorneys are highly skilled negotiators who take a comprehensive approach to reach a fair settlement for our clients in divorce cases. While we strive to reach an agreement through negotiations, we are fully prepared to litigate matters if an agreement cannot be reached.

Custody Agreements

Custody Agreements are often a part of a divorce settlement but often stand alone if the parties are not married, if there is no property in dispute, or if there is no agreement regarding property and/or support. The Custody Agreement addresses all issues that pertain to raising your children. This includes defining custody, establishing visitation schedules, child support and more. We work with clients in crafting child Custody Agreements that are in the child's best interests while protecting the rights of our client. Our attorneys are known for being creative in establishing unique, effective agreements.
