So grateful to have found this site, so first, thank you.
My husband and I are working on a separation currently, no one has yet moved out of the home. We don’t seem to be having any issues as of yet in who will take care of our financial responsibilities. Currently my husband is not making enough income to move out of our home and take on the financial responsibilities we are looking to set up in the agreement. So here are my questions: am I correct that the separation agreement becomes formal/legal after it is signed with a notary? Outside of filing a lawsuit, is there anything I can do that will protect me if he doesn’t follow through on those financial obligations? For example; the home loan is in his name but I will be taking responsibility for that and both cars are in my name but he will take responsibility for one car loan. Can I do something that will change the names on those loans so I am no longer responsible if the payment is not made?
