What Can A Separation Agreement Do?

Many people do not realize that legal separation is an option in North Carolina. Under certain circumstances, being legally separated has more benefits for couples than divorce.

Separation agreements are effective tools that can be used to resolve all issues relating to the marriage (with the exception of the actual divorce) in cases where the parties agree on the relevant issues such as custody, support, and property division. Separation agreements are also much less costly than having to litigate these issues in court.
