One of the most effective ways to resolve family disputes is for the parties to reach an agreement reached by the respective spouses` lawyers. A minute`s agreement, also known as the Separation Agreement, is a flexible and powerful instrument that can address almost any family issue. To be a legally binding document, both sides must first agree to a minute of the agreement. When the agreement deals with family allowances, this part is theoretically binding only for one year after the signing of the agreement. Subsequently, both parents (although they do not) can apply to the child care service for a maintenance check that, once in force, replaces the child care provisions in the agreement. If you wish to enter into a separation agreement, you can use a lawyer to establish formal documents called „minute of agreement.“ These define what you agree with your partner. The lawyer will record them in council books and meetings. Once this phase is complete, it must be included in the Council`s and meeting books.
It is important that you go to someone expert to deal with such agreements so that you can be sure that any agreement you sign is legally binding and enforceable.
