New Jersey Marital Settlement Agreement Lawyer

What Is a Marital Settlement Agreement?

In New Jersey, the vast majority of divorce cases resolve by way of settlement. When this occurs, the parties enter into what is known as a Marital Settlement Agreement (“MSA”) or, interchangeably, Property Settlement Agreement (“PSA”) to memorialize the terms of their agreement as to each and every matter at issue in the dissolution of their marriage.

These matters can include (but are not limited to):

If you believe that you and your spouse can come to one of these agreements to dissolve your marriage, our firm can guide you through the process. Contact Ziegler & Resnick at (973) 878-4373 today.

Avoiding Protracted Litigation

The public policy of New Jersey, like many other States, is to encourage settlement of litigation. As set forth in the Appellate Division case of Tahan v. Duquette, 259 N.J. Super 328, 336 (App. Div. 1992), “no stranger in a judicial robe, however able and well-motivated he or she may be, is equipped to make a decision as valid” as the parties working together to reach a resolution. As such, with few exceptions, the terms of an agreement reached between divorcing litigants is generally, strictly enforced by the Court.
