Is there any benefit to a particular spouse to NOT sign a separation agreement (other than disagreeing with terms)…or is my STBX just trying to be difficult? Such as: would it be beneficial not to sign so that you could change your mind about custody/visitation/alimony/support later and not be in breach of contract?
I cannot get my STBX to sign the separation agreement that BOTH attorneys have been working on. Every time I ask if it has been signed, ANOTHER “issue” arises. These could simply be that she is upset that day and refuses to sign, to wanting to quarrel over insignificant amounts of money (the attorneys fees cost MORE than the amount she wants to bicker over). Please note: the issues I’m referring to, are not issues regarding the terms of the agreement, but issues she doesn’t agree with that are exclusive of the agreement (ie. I asked for the kids to be dropped off – therefore she won’t sign the agreement). They are all just poor excuses in my mind.
I have decided that filing suit is my best option to get legal documents in place. Would a judge recognize her continued efforts to be unreasonable? Will her behavior be accountable in court?
