Dear “Not Really Jarhead”:
Greetings. Please tell Jarhead to be safe in Iraq!
Oh my. No he does not want to set himself up paying post separation support, the house payment, and possibly child support (if there are children). A separation agreement should be a final document, not a temporary one. He should only sign a final agreement that suits him.
He should not pay her any spousal support (alimony or post separation support) if she cheated on him and has admitted the same or he has proof of the same. Best of luck.
