Family Law

Due to the complexity of a martial settlement agreement, it is always advisable to hire an attorney to draft this document or to review it if prepared by another attorney. Once a Martial Settlement Agreement is executed by the parties, it is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to set aside or withdraw.

Moreover, if you are represented by an attorney in an uncontested divorce, some counties allow the parties to bypass the required attendance at a Final Hearing before the Court to finalize the divorce.


I was referred to Draper Law by my father in-law after being hit from behind in an auto accident. I didn't realize, at the time, what an important decision I was making by hiring a personal injury attorney to represent me. Charles Draper took the time to explain the process and what I could expect. His professional team was there for me every step of the way through a long, and often complicated, legal experience. I just want to express my sincerest gratitude for all the efforts that were taken by Charlie and his team on my behalf in obtaining a settlement on my case.
