Seperation Agreement


#1

Dear crystals:

Greetings. No, you never need to sign a separation agreement. Generally, if you cannot come to an agreement, your spouse will just file a lawsuit against you for the issues that need to be resolved. Best of luck.

My husband is saying he wants to file for seperation, but I will not sign. I do not agree in divorce! It says in the bible I cor 7: 10-16,
and I refuse to let this marriage end in divorce, and will not sign.
If your husband wants to file, what is the worst possible senerio that they do if they file a lawsuit for issues that need resolved?
What kind of issues?

Dear lilbearnc:

Greetings. First, I respect your beliefs, but you need to understand that your husband does not need your consent or signature to get a divorce. Whether or not you agree with divorce, it looks like you may have to accept that one is coming. If that is the case, you need to make some financial decisions for yourself. That includes negotiating for alimony and an equitable property distribution.

As far as the remaining question(s), I would advise you to look over the legal issues on our site a little more and then come back and ask any other specific questions you have. Thank you.

My wife wants a seperation agreement and I don’t want one.
Do I have to have a seperation agreement?
If do not, do I have to sign an agreement my wife and her lawyer draw up?
Thank you for your help.
