What is a settlement agreement?
A global settlement in a divorce action details a plan to share time with the children, how much support is owed from one party to the other, and how to separate the assets and debts accumulated during the marriage.
Are They Common?
A very small percentage of cases go all the way to Trial. In other words, most cases are resolved via settlement at some point in the proceedings.
This settlement agreement will impact the entire family for years to come and must be well drafted. Do not sign any agreements without first consulting an attorney.
