Greetings. First, your separation agreement must have a clause that allows it to be incorporated. Then, you need to make sure that you understand ALL the ramifications for incorporating your separation agreement. Finally, you must file in the divorce complaint or answer a request for the separation agreement to be incorporated and attach the agreement. Best of luck…and please talk to an attorney before you do this to understand the differences between your current agreement and the order it will become after incorporation. Best of luck.
