What should I include in a divorce settlement agreement?

Your divorce settlement agreement should cover everything that is important to you, including custody of your children, child support payments, alimony, and the separation of your property, such as your family home, vehicles, and other assets. Your divorce settlement agreement is about more than just the things you own; it should also cover your debts and expected expenses.

If you have kids, everything from paying for braces and related expenses to college savings and tuition needs to be included. If you own pets, even the custody of your animals can be defined in this document. By drafting a comprehensive agreement that covers as many eventualities as you can, you end up with a document that clearly outlines your rights and responsibilities after your marriage. If something is important to you, it should be included in your divorce settlement agreement.
