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.
