(5 pages) This is a comprehensive settlement which a husband and wife sign after summons has been served. Naturally, some of the provisions may not be applicable or suitable and if you cannot adapt the settlement suitably, an attorney should be consulted. Nonetheless, it contains the most usual types of provisions. It is advisable to do your divorce through an attorney. The draft settlement will hopefully assuage the anxieties before an attorney is consulted and prepare you for your negotiations at the correct time after summons. The court is not prepared to sanction a divorce settlement if it has been signed before service of summons. There is nothing preventing the parties from agreeing in principle to the settlement provisions prior to service of summons. The formal settlement agreement will confirm the earlier negotiations.
