As with other marital agreements, a written separation agreement clearly defines the rights and obligations of you and your spouse, both during and after separation. If one spouse does not meet the obligations of the separation agreement, the other spouse may enforce the separation agreement in court. If you do not have a lawyer and the separation agreement was drafted by your spouse, your spouse`s lawyer or even a mediator/mediator hired by both spouses, you should always submit a proposed separation contract to an independent lawyer to have it checked before signing.
