If you do not yet have a written agreement, it is important to develop one.

The agreement should include information regarding the following applicable issues: child custody, child support, distribution of assets and debts and spousal support.

An attorney is best equipped to complete this task for you in order to ensure your rights and to include terms that clearly outline the terms of your agreement. A lawyer can also ensure that you comply with all local laws and that the local child support agency agrees to the terms for child support in the agreement, if applicable.

Your attorney will assist you in completing all mandated court papers that pertain to your divorce proceeding.
