I’m trying to do my own separation agreement. Do I need to add a clause that says something to the effect that what’s in the agreement regarding alimony is all I’m going to pay? Or is that assumed by the agreement itself. I have paid a total of $9000 in 5 equal payments, and will pay $9000 more in a lump sum upon execution of the agreement. Do I need to state anything else?
I would suggest you list terminating factors (in addition to term), including a language waiving any future claim to alimony, and include language regarding modification. There is a sample agreement on the site which may be helpful for you to look at.
