Specifics are Key in Separation Agreements

Having a very detailed, specific separation agreement is an important factor in ensuring that you will not become embroiled in post-divorce litigation over the rights and duties of the parties under the agreement. In recent months, I have been involved in several cases where former spouses are litigating over their obligations set out in their separation agreement. The common factor in all three cases? The original agreements were vague, ambigious, had terms subject to more than one interpretation or were missing key details.

A very specific, detailed agreement may save you lots of aggravation and money later.
