Greetings. You ned to file a complaint for the issue of equitable distribution. That is the process. You can come to an agreement, but you need an attorney to draft it and review it. DO NOT SIGN any document without having an attorney review it with you. I agree you need to get an attorney involved.
Yes, you should have an agreement on child custody, but that can be in the separation agreement also. Best of luck.
