ILA – aka Independent Legal Advice

Independent Legal Advice
  • While it is not required by law that you obtain ILA before signing a contract, failing to do so can have catastrophic consequences.

  • Without ILA, you run the risk of having your Agreement set aside by a court.

  • You can sign your agreement, even if your ILA Lawyer advises you against it.

  • Your lawyer can refuse to witness your signature or might witness it but write you a letter saying why they advised you not to sign the separation agreement.
