A stipulation in Placer County is an agreement between both sides in a legal dispute as to some fact or issue. In a divorce, for example, a couple could stipulate the value of an asset, such as a small business or a home. Stipulations can save time and money because the couple does not need to present evidence to the judge to resolve the dispute. If a couple agrees on many substantive issues, such as child custody and child support, they can enter a separation agreement with the court for its approval. Stipulations should be drafted by an attorney so that they are not too broad or say something a litigant disagrees with.
