South Carolina Separation Agreement Attorney
Separation agreements can help you and your spouse settle the matters that are settled in divorce before filing for divorce and without having the court make decisions for you. You need the help of an experienced divorce attorney to make sure that the documents are legally binding and custom tailored to your unique situation. South Carolina separation agreement attorney J. Darrell Beckham will take the time to go over all of the circumstances in your case, as well as your needs and goals. Please do not hesitate to call, any time of the day or night, to learn more.
Matters Addressed by Separation Agreements
Separation agreements can address all of the matters that are settled in divorce or they can be used only for the matters that you and your spouse can agree upon. Examples include:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Spousal support
- Allocation of assets and liabilities
The court must review and approve your agreements. This is just one of the many reasons for working with an experienced South Carolina divorce attorney in drafting your agreements. The court will approve most agreements that it believes to be fair and made without coercion.
However, the court must also review the financial statements of both spouses and make sure that agreements, such as those for child support, are in keeping with legal guidelines. Attorney J. Darrell Beckham’s clients benefit from his background in finance when it comes to issues such as child support, spousal support, and division of property.
Separation Agreements Tailored to Your Situation
Mr. Beckham does not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to separation and divorce. He understands that every couple and each situation is unique. Separation agreements give you flexibility you do not have when you leave the decisions up to the court. But you can only take full advantage of that flexibility if you work with an attorney who is willing to take the time and effort to fully consider all of your unique needs and goals and draft agreements with that in mind.
Separation agreements can be a step to a less contentious divorce process and an outcome that both you and your spouse find acceptable.
