Separation Agreements

Minnesota Attorneys Assisting With Marital Separation Agreements

Individuals who are not committed to the idea of divorce may find legal separation a viable alternative. Some couples choose separation for financial reasons, as divorce can be expensive. Others choose separation as a precursor to divorce, to establish the responsibilities of each party.

Whatever your objectives, it may be wise to discuss your legal options with a family law attorney. Contact the attorneys of Berg, Debele, DeSmidt & Rabuse, P.A., in downtown Minneapolis. We can talk over your options during an initial consultation.

Marital Separation Agreements Explained

A marital separation agreement is an agreement signed by both spouses establishing the terms of legal separation.

They can establish living arrangements, child custody, spousal maintenance (also known as alimony) and other terms of separation.
