Settlements are one of the two primary ways for a legal matter to conclude. The other one is by a judgment after trial.
Settlements are the results of agreement arising out of two or more persons’ disagreement and are the results of negotiations which include offers and counter-offers.
All issues in family law may be settled and most family law matters do settle and only a small percentage are ended by a judgment after trial.
Settlements are manifested by written documents called a settlement agreements. Marital settlement agreements are one typical way to resolve family law matters. Stipulations for entry of judgment are another.
