· A separation agreement is not evidence of the separation of the parties. It is not necessary for a divorce in North Carolina, and it makes a divorce in North Carolina no easier or more difficult to obtain. More importantly, especially when there are minor children in marriage, a separation contract allows you and your spouse to prepare the details of custody and visitation in advance and to allow for child care and child care supplements (called add-ons) such as health insurance, education and child care.

If the agreement has not been included, it can only be amended with the agreement of both parties. However, by including the agreement, the judge may decide whether to amend it or not. When couples separate, there are a number of loose purposes that may have to be linked to dissolve the marriage.

A separation agreement provides spouses with a reasonably effective way to resolve outstanding issues both economically and at the stress level. The cost of litigation can be in depth, given the amount of legal work required to navigate procedural requirements and preparation for the process. Litigation is, by its very nature, a highly controversial process that can widen a gap between the spouses involved.
