Q. I am getting a divorce. I was told to prepare a separation agreement. What is that?
separation agreement: A written agreement that lists the terms of separation. This usually says what money will be paid for child(ren), maintenance payments, division of martial property, child care and related issues. This agreement must be formally signed and witnessed (notarized) and covers the time before the divorce but after the separation.
