Come To Your Own Terms With A Separation Agreement

Not knowing your future or the fate of your assets is a main stress point for any divorce. But the judge does not have to be the one who decides what happens after your marriage is over. If you would prefer to be in control of the results of your divorce, you and your spouse may fill out a separation agreement.

We at Dickerson Law Firm understand the need to limit the chaos during the tense time of a divorce. Our firm has represented clients and their families in Hillsborough and the surrounding area since 1973. Our father-daughter team of lawyers has over 60 years of combined legal experience and is ready to address your concerns and provide caring counsel as you work out your separation agreement.

You Can Have Control And We Can Help

A major benefit of a separation agreement is that it becomes your divorce judgment. In North Carolina, you and your spouse must wait at least one year from the date on which you both signed your separation agreement for it to officially become your divorce judgment. A separation agreement may cover:

  • Division of debts and taxes
  • Division of property assets such as vehicles and homes
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Alimony

While a separation agreement may be a great option when going through a divorce, it can also be quite complicated to navigate. From property settlement to child custody, the scope is large and the weight is heavy. You need an attorney to keep an eye out for your family as you approach these life-changing decisions. Our attorneys at Dickerson Law Firm will put your needs first.
