Marital Settlement Agreement and Consent Decree

To make a divorce final, a consent decree is required. A consent decree comes in the form of a court order and settles issues that may be tied up with the divorce, such as having one of the spouses continue child support payments. Couples involved in a divorce can sometimes communicate with each other, and sometimes not. This is where the value of a consent decree lies, since it keeps the former spouses from reneging on agreements that have already been established because they are angry at each other. Quite often a marital settlement agreement comes in the form of a consent decree. As such, the court may make the decision that the final settlement will reflect the current arrangement. This is often the case when a legal separation goes on to divorce.
