Settlement Agreement (Uncontested)


Overview
- The Property Settlement Agreement is used by a couple that will divorce or separate to make a written agreement regarding disposition of property, payment of support (alimony) and matters concerning minor children.
- Signing the agreement does not terminate the marriage.  While this agreement defines the terms for a separation, there can be no divorce until the parties take the appropriate steps in state court.
