Minutes of Settlement
After the parties have hired lawyers and said terrible things about each in the court documents,
there sometimes comes a lull, following all the venting.
When the parties decide to resolve matters, lawyers usually draw up Minutes of Settlement
outlining the terms of resolution. The Minutes can resolve some issues (Partial Minutes of
Settlement) or resolve them temporarily (Interim Minutes of Settlement) or resolve everything
(Final Minutes of Settlement)
Court orders can be drawn up, filed with the court and appropriate orders issued. The terms
would deal with the same issues dealt with in a separation agreement, however each party would
normally be provided with an appropriate court order reflecting the terms of the minutes.
Please note: If you are involved in a matrimonial dispute, we
strongly recommend that you retain a lawyer to represent
you at the first possible opportunity;
This site and this note are designed only to acquaint you with a
few (and only a few) of the issues that may affect you.
It is not intended as legal advice on any specific case.
You are well advised to retain the services of an
experienced lawyer as soon as possible.
