What you call it doesn’t really matter. The purpose of a divorce settlement agreement is to memorialize any agreements reached between divorcing (or separating) spouses as to child custody,child support, alimony (also referred to as “spousal support” or “maintenance”), and the division of property. For purposes of this article, we’ll refer to it as a “Divorce Agreement” or just plain “agreement.”
