Divorce and Separation
Divorce is the dissolution of a marriage. Separation can be a stressful and emotional process because it often involves signifigant life changes. Mark Petty is dedicated to helping individuals undergoing divorce and other separation issues. We have the required expertise to cater to all your individual requirements and provide appropriate solutions.
A domestic contract is an agreement that outlines the rights and responsibilities between, usually, two people. These contracts can apply to both married and unmarried people. If you and your partner determine the terms of your separation, it is likely that you will be more satisfied with the terms than those imposed by a Judge at trial.
Marriage, Cohabitation, and Separation
Domestic contracts are marriage, cohabitation, and separation agreements. Separation agreements cover parenting, support and property division after parties separate. Marriage and co-habitation agreements establish the terms of separation at the start, or shortly after the start, of the marriage or co-habitaiton.
Enforcing Domestic Contracts
It is very important to make sure that the terms of your domestic contract are enforceable. If you failed to disclose all of your finances when negotiating the contract, there is an increased likelihood that the contract may be set aside. At Petty Law Office, we will ensure that you have the required documentation that supports and validates your decision.
If you and your spouse have negotiated and signed a separation agreement, you may be able to file for an uncontested divorce. This process does require intervention of the courts and may involve filing fees depending on your circumstances. Mark Petty can assist you in completing uncontested divorces.
