My spouse’s lawyer sent a letter requesting information that will be used to create a Separation Agreement. I suggested to my spouse that we can negotiate a suitable Separation Agreement without a significant amount of legal expense. So I am not sure I want to respond to this Separation Agreement letter.
Furthermore, in the letter a date of March 30th is set as the “Separation Date”. I would rather specify an earlier date ( Jan 1st ) when I actually last slept in the house.
Finally, the Separation Letter says the cause of the separation is “evidence of adultery”. I contest this and will not sign or respond to any document that seems to imply I have committed adultery.
Do I have to respond to this letter as it stands, or can I request changes to the letter before I respond?
