There are several things most couples will want to discuss and possibly detail out in a separation agreement. A good checklist would typically include: • Who will live in the family home? What access with the other spouse have to the residence, if any? • Who will retain custody of the children? Under what terms? • How much spousal support and/or child support will be paid and by which party? Other questions that go on the checklist but are not part of the separation agreement include provisions for taking care of your physical and mental health needs, support and space to grieve during the separation.
