Step 4: Review Judgment and/or MSA
The final document that needs to be completed is the Divorce Judgment and/or Marital Settlement Agreement. It’s a little misleading because there are actually several documents that go with it. An experienced divorce lawyer will review all of your final documents and let you know if any edits are suggested. Your lawyer will also schedule a one-hour call with you to talk through the terms of your Judgment and ensure that it says what you want it to say. (Legalese can sometimes be a bit complicated). If you have any questions before you finalize your divorce, now is the time!
