There are no laws that state that separation agreements must be drafted by legal representatives, although it’s always recommended that this happens. You may wish to draft your own as a couple, but this will require you to check all provincial requirements so that the agreement you produce is legally binding and enforceable. If the way you write your separation agreement is unclear, things can get messy in court if one partner decides to cease respecting the terms of your agreement.
