Free Trade agreement and separation papers


#1

I have been separated from my husband for 8 years. I receive a free trade agreement with separation papers when he tried to close on a house. There were many discrepancies regarding the spelling of his last name and my last name were different. On our marriage license our last name are the same. His previous ex wife and children names are spell the same way. Now his ladt name is spell differently. We brought house during our marriage there was no problem with his ladt name. Want me to get notarized. I am not sure about that and he had the year off by 8 years when we were married. another red flag. Then on the separation agreement we have not settled 401K and profit-sharing which I am entitle of the 14 years of marriage. His words to me were we’ll just settled it on our own I just need for you to sign the papers. His lender wants me to send a copy of my drivers license to make sure she spells my name correctly. Need help

A free trader agreement will allow your husband to purchase real property without your name being on the deed since you two are still legally married. This is generally a short document but you would need to make sure your name is spelled correctly.

The separation agreement should list all marital property and state how each piece of property and debt is distributed or who will be receiving it as their sole and separate property. You should not sign a separation agreement until there is a full settlement on all marital property and marital debt issues.
