Separation Agreement


#1

My husband sent me a separation agreement in the mail. I do not agree with the terms and will not sign it.

  1. Is there a time limit on how long I have to get it changed to my liking by an attorney and mailed back to his for review?
  2. Can he take my engagement ring? It seems a little absurd to me since it was a gift.
    Thanks for your help.

for #2 – The engagement ring is your separate property as it was given prior to marriage however your wedding band is marital.

No, you don’t have to respond at all, but the attorney will likely file in court if you do not respond.

Engagement ring is separate property.
