This is obviously a very important step, as the terms in your separation agreement will affect your future and that of your children. It’s a binding contract that is legally enforceable, so you must honour its terms. Often, it will be used as the basis for your divorce. So be sure you are content with it before you sign it. Ideally get a legal representative to create it, or at least review it before you sign it because everything needs to be carefully considered.
