The risks of preparing your own separation agreement or using a “do-it-yourself” kit are that:

  • It may not be valid or enforceable;
  • It may not say what you want it to say; and
  • It may not do what you want it to do.

Family law is very complex. There is no boilerplate agreement that can be applied to every relationship. If you are making a separation agreement, it is important to get legal advice to help you assess your particular situation, advise you on the law, and help you sort out what you should include in your agreement. We tailor and prepare agreements that apply to your situation.
