When divorced, there is a division of assets such as property, savings, and
anything of substantial monetary value, and also a division of liabilities or debt.
The average person remarries three years after a divorce.
In a traditional adversarial divorce or in a co-operative mediation divorce,
the judge does not have to accept the settlement agreement in contemplation of a
divorce, but they normal do unless there is something wrong with it. Some things
which might cause a judge to not allow the agreement are, child support too far
outside the guidelines, or an unlawful provision in the agreement.
