Our Carlsbad Attorneys Can Help You Negotiate An Agreement For Your Family Law Case
There are two ways to settle a family law dispute in California: by agreement or by court order. Parties are free to come to agreements on disputed issues, thereby taking control of their family law issues rather than allowing the system to manage their finances and children for them.
Pre- And Post-Nuptial Agreements, Cohabitation Agreements And Marital Settlement Agreements
Parties to a family law matter can proactively create an agreement in anticipation of future legal marital disputes (prenuptial agreements) or agreements concerning current legal marital disputes (marital settlement agreements). Parties can also come to agreements on specific issues during a divorce without necessarily settling the whole case at once (stipulations).
Regardless of the issue or type of agreement entered into, it is generally best for all involved to enter into an agreement rather than spend thousands of dollars on litigation. Often, the end result of litigation is even worse than what could have been achieved by agreement in the first place, even after paying an attorney to put up a fight.
