Is A Separation Agreement Right For You?
If you are separating or planning to separate from your spouse, you may want to consider a separation agreement as an alternative to litigation. A separation agreement is an out-of-court contract that is designed to resolve all potential claims that could arise out of a marriage such as child custody, child support, alimony and property division. At Lehnhardt Price Family Law, our attorneys will provide you with the legal help you need for drafting, reviewing and negotiating this type of agreement.
While divorce has been common in North Carolina for years, many married couples whose relationship is ending prefer not to divorce. For example, they may have religious objections to divorce or believe they may reconcile someday. Whatever your reason, legal separation is an alternative to divorce that lets you start the next chapter in your life without the finality of divorce.
