Annapolis Separation Agreements

Dedicated to Representing Your Rights & Interests

A marital separation agreement is a contract that clearly outlines how the end of your marriage will unfold, both legally and practically. Separation agreements can be drafted before or after filing for divorce, as they allow couples to come to a voluntary agreement about how to best separate their property. If you and your spouse are considering ending your marriage, an Annapolis separation attorney can provide assistance in creating a fair separation agreement that satisfies both parties.

The Law Office of Patrick Crawford provides accessible and committed care. For insight on your case, call (410) 656-6227.

What is in a Separation Agreement?

A separation agreement is integral in making decisions concerning:

Are Separation Agreements Permanent?

It is important to understand that separation agreements do not legally end your marriage. You are not free to remarry, and engaging in sexual relations with another party could potentially complicate your future divorce. Instead, separation agreements are a road map of sorts. The goal is to clearly outline both members’ rights and expectations of living apart, and provides for the potentiality of pursuing a divorce in the future.

If you and your spouse reconcile and live together again as a couple, the contract can be revoked. If the agreement is violated, a lawsuit could be brought against the at-fault party.

Our Role in the Process

Couples have been known to create separation agreements between themselves without legal counsel in the past. However, we strongly advise against this. Without the in-depth knowledge that comes from years of legal experience, it is unlikely that your separation agreement will address all of the necessary issues and future problems are likely to arise. At The Law Office of Patrick Crawford, an Annapolis separation lawyer can educate you on the extent of your rights and ensure you are treated reasonably and fairly.

We are here to be your ally. Schedule a consultation at (410) 656-6227.
