Make a Financial Agreement
Financial Agreement is a document that explains how you and your former partner will divide your property. While a financial agreement does not need to be approved by the court, you must have a lawyer’s advice when drawing up a financial agreement.
Arrange a Consent Order
Consent orders are documents that spell out details of how you and your former spouse will divide your property. Consent orders must have court approval and, once approved, are as enforceable as any court order made at a formal hearing. Courts do not automatically approve consent orders and will weigh in on the equity of the property settlement. A lawyer should take part in drawing up consent orders.
