If you want your money then you need to sign. Apparently you have agreed to let her buy you out of the house since it’s in the Sep Agreement. The free trader allows her to refinance and get your name off and then she can pay you what she owes you.
Greetings. Interesting name…very clever. The separation agreement should include the language she believes she needs in the free trader agreement. The separation agreement should act as a free trader agreement. I would not sign anything additional at this time. Thank you.

my wife wants me to sign a free trader agreement so she can refinance our home and repay me my share of the equity, an amount that we’ve agreed upon in the separation agreement. should i avoid signing since it’s my only claim on my original investment, or is the separation agreement sufficient coverage?
