Is my seperation agreement valid

It should but I would suggest that the attorney make the correction, resign and refile, just in case. You don’t want that coming back as a loophole down the road.

Dear maniacslady:

Greetings. Yes, generally, if you signed with a notary then a separation agreement will stand up to scrutiny even with small errors like the date of marriage or dates of birth. Good luck.

I was so upset when I signed it. The copy I originally looked at was correct. The copy I signed had incorrect information on it such as the year of our marriage and the month that our son was born. I did not notice it was wrong until later in the evening. Will it still hold up as a valid document?
