Legal Agreements

Understanding the Documents in Your Memphis Divorce

The saying is “Your promise is worth the paper it is written on.” This means if you do not have it in writing, you are going to have a hard time enforcing any agreement.

Some documents are required for your divorce, such as a parenting plan and marital dissolution agreement for an irreconcilable difference divorce. Some agreements, like apre- or post-nuptial agreement are good for avoiding problems. Some of these documents can be modified, while others cannot.

Rice Law can help you understand the legal agreements that may be involved in your Memphis divorce, such as:

  • Marital Dissolution Agreement—This document lays out any number of provisions for your divorce, such as alimony and child support amounts, debt division, a visitation schedule, and more.
  • Parenting Plan—When children are involved, a legal agreement must be set regarding how often each parent has the children, when visitation occurs, who makes which decisions, and other parenting considerations.
  • Prenuptial or Antenuptial Agreement—Some couples prepare a legal document before or during their marriage to specify the division of property, conditions for divorce, and other various arrangements in the event of dissolution.

Nick really does care about the best interest of his clients. I hired Nick a second time this year dealing with a child relocation case. Again he is a professional with family law.
