Boilerplate Terms in Marital Agreements

All too frequently, attorneys drafting property settlement agreements, custody agreements, cohabitation agreements, or any agreements in the family law area, focus their attention on the core terms of a settlement, rather than on the agreement as a whole. All too frequently attorneys simply fill in the blanks, using the same boilerplate clauses in all of their agreements. Equally undesirable, attorneys, when reviewing agreements, rush through the drafter's boilerplate clauses and negotiate only the language relating to core term provisions.

This OnDemand Webinar will help you understand the importance of boilerplate clauses, draft boilerplate clauses in such a way as to be useful when and if litigating modification or enforcement actions, and in making every word of an agreement meaningful to your client. This program will provide you with samples of the best of the best boilerplate clauses. This OnDemand Webinar is critical for those drafting agreements in the normal course of their practice and in reviewing such agreements.

Agenda

Every Agreement Is a Compromise - Agreements, Whether Reached in Negotiation or Mediation, Are the Result of Give-and-Take, of Acknowledging What Is Important to Your Client and What Is More Important or Less Important to the Opposing Spouse - Every Negotiated or Mediated Term of an Agreement Must Be Agreed to Freely and Voluntarily

  • Waiver of Rights
  • Full Disclosure
  • Fairness of Agreement

The Terms of Every Agreement Should Be Confidential - In Celebrity or High Income Cases, Confidentiality Clauses, or, in Some Cases, Separate Confidentiality Agreements, Are Imperative, But Aren't We Obligated to Protect All Clients' Confidences

  • Broad Explanation
  • Business Interests
  • Penalties

Advocacy Starts at the Very Beginning - The Introductory Paragraphs of an Agreement, Commonly Called the Whereas Clauses, Should Lay Out the Factual Premise of the Agreement

  • Prior Obligations
  • Custody
  • Modification
