What is a Separation Agreement?
A Separation Agreement is a written document that defines the terms and conditions of your divorce. It is really a "Divorce Agreement". It includes the parts of a parenting plan: when the children will be with each parent, appropriate custody terms, provisions for holidays and vacation, authorization for medical care, school records and what ever else the parents think would be helpful. The Separation Agreement also includes provisions for child support and education and, if appropriate, spousal support. Also included will be a property settlement and consideration of marital debt, tax issues, and health and life insurance.
