Family law agreements are legally binding contracts that help both sides define their rights and responsibilities toward one another. They can cover all sorts of family law matters, including property division, parenting, spousal support and adoption.
Creating a solid, flexible and useful agreement can take time. A good agreement requires negotiation, communication, reasonableness and, often, compromise.
It also requires solid legal advice about your rights, and realistic advice as to when you may have to be flexible and when you need to stand firm to prevent the other side from taking advantage of you.
