Enforcing Family Law Contracts
Contract disputes are always difficult, but the stakes are even higher when those contracts cover family issues. At Averett Family Law, we’re here to help you understand the process of enforcing your family law agreements.
Which contracts are family law contracts?
Family law contracts come with a variety of different names that can be confusing. You may hear terms like “separation agreement”, “property settlement”, “parenting agreement”, or “prenup”. These terms aren’t exact. Instead, they’re meant to describe the general subjects covered in the contract.
For example, parenting agreements generally cover issues of child custody and child support. Property settlements usually deal with the division of marital property. Separation agreements can cover any (or all) these issues at the end of a marriage. Prenuptial agreements usually do the same at the start.
It’s important to remember that a contract’s name is much less important than its terms.
