How does the final agreement become an order of the court?

The final terms of the agreement are drafted into a marital settlement agreement (MSA). Each party has an opportunity to review the MSA draft on their own. Each party will have the opportunity to have it inspected by a separate attorney of their choice. Once final revisions have been made, it is signed by both parties with a notary present. The MSA is filed in the court, along with the final court documents and becomes an enforceable court order.
