The final settlement agreement for your divorce is a document that will stay with you for many years to come. It is essential that you understand the document well.
The language used in court judgments can be very confusing. We sometimes come across situations where clients don’t fully understand – or they misunderstand – the contents of their final judgment. This can affect your ability to fulfill your obligations and know what your rights are and what you are entitled to. Reviewing your final judgment with an attorney will assure you that you understand every aspect of your court judgment.
It is also helpful to go through a final judgment with the help of an attorney to make sure that it doesn’t contain any errors. A good rule is to do this before it is forwarded to the courts for the judge to sign.

As an outside advocate, Max can provide you with the analysis and perspective needed to ensure that you are getting a fair shake.
