Separation Agreements

Virginia Separation Agreement Attorneys

Separation agreements, also commonly called property settlement agreements or marital settlement agreements, are contracts designed to resolve divorce-related issues without litigation. These agreements can make divorce less complicated and make it clear to the court that you and your spouse are seeking an uncontested divorce.

At Maddox & Gerock, P.C., we draft separation agreements that help our clients avoid long, drawn out litigation. Even if you have already filed for divorce, you can still create a separation agreement. If your spouse has hired an attorney to draft a property settlement agreement, we can review it to make sure it treats you fairly.

By leaving as little to the judge as possible, much of the uncertainty and stress caused by litigation can be removed.
