Legal documents in a divorce are extremely important and dictate the terms of your separation. They also dictate how child custody, child support, alimony, and other divorce issues will be handled. No matter how much you may trust the other side, if someone puts legal papers in front of you to sign, it’s critical to ensure these documents protect your rights and the best interest of your family before signing on the dotted line. Even if you believe everyone has your best interests at heart, what may appear to be an inconsequential issue or an oversight now, could have lasting negative effects on your life and well-being for years to come. Only a family law attorney with years of experience will know what to look for to ensure your best interests are really protected now and in the future.
