How can I reach an agreement?

Agreements, like court orders, record the terms and conditions that will govern your relationship after separation.

An agreement may be made between you and your spouse about any family law issue, such as:

  • Parenting arrangements
  • Support
  • Property division

You can either:

You can have an agreement about one issue or you can have a single agreement about all of your family law issues.

Legal Advice

We suggest you get legal advice before signing an agreement.

Legal advice can also be helpful before you begin negotiating an agreement. It can help you understand what may be fair in your situation and what to expect if you went to court. This often helps people reach agreement.
