It sounds like you need a pretty simple separation agreement that just basically says (1) that the parties have agreed to a division of assets and settled the issues pertaining to equitable distribution and (2) as a part of that division of assets, husband has agreed to be solely responsible for the federal tax liability. If you use Rosen Online for assistance with the agreement we can provide you with forms and answers to your questions so the agreement is done accurately and is enforceable.
