Property Settlement Attorney New Jersey
Property Settlement Attorney for North Bergen, Jersey City, Union City – and greater New Jersey
When couples choose to separate, they may desire to obtain a Property Settlement Agreement (PSA) as part of the proceedings. While this agreement most commonly deals with the division of physical property, it also serves additional purposes. A PSA can outline someone’s rights and obligations within the confines of a divorce.
In New Jersey, a property settlement agreement provides couples with legal documentation that outlines parameters around parenting and other components of a separation. Someone can also live as a legally separated couple without getting a divorce, with a PSA in place.
What is Covered in a Property Settlement Agreement in New Jersey?
A property settlement agreement can be created before or after filing for divorce or if separating. It will lay out the parameters of the separation. Specifically, the PSA will outline decisions on, but not limited to:
- Property division
- Child custody
- Child support
- Savings accounts
- Health insurance
An attorney can help determine clear ownership of property that was obtained before the separation. It is essential to have this defined before a PSA can be properly filed.
Agreeing to a poorly drafted PSA could mean that your rights are severely infringed upon within the constraints of the divorce or separation. Having an experienced North Bergen and Jersey City divorce attorney draft proper documentation is essential within the process. Attorney Lazaro Carvajal has over a decade of experience with property settlement agreements and divorce proceedings.
