Drafting A NJ Matrimonial Settlement Agreement

Posted by Steven J. Kaplan, Esq. on April 1, 2017

It has often been said that 99 out of 100 NJ Divorce Cases are ultimately settled, and that only 1 out of 100 divorce cases in New Jersey actually result in a trial before a Family Court judge.

There are many names for the same type of document.

Drafting a Matrimonial Settlement Agreement (MSA) in a NJ divorce case is not an easy task. It is sort of the metaphorical equivalent to what a sculptor faces when he sits down to create a sculpture. 

I'm not a sculptor. I have never tried sculpting from a block of rock.
