Independent legal advice is advice that each spouse receives from his or her own family lawyers. There is no law that requires you to get legal advice before signing your separation contract. But it is always recommended that you seek legal advice. The answer was: it was never OUR separation agreement; It was MY separation agreement. Many legal experts consider that the task of reviewing separation agreements that have not been drafted by lawyers is high-risk, low-reward work, which often prevents them from getting involved. Think about it from the lawyer`s point of view. You will have office and staff rent to pay, and spending a few hours reviewing a separation agreement that you have written yourself will not be as lucrative as the work of a client going through a full divorce procedure. Moreover, the risks associated with such work are simply not worth the royalty. Most national agreements are developed at a time when you are both in a positive, happy and friendly headspace (for example. B for pre-marriage or cohabitation contracts), and this is precisely the time when many important things can be overlooked, embellished or set aside as “unimportant”. It is therefore particularly important that such agreements be verified by a family lawyer: not only will this lawyer know the law and keep an eye on the text of the document, but he or she will insist that each of you must obtain independent legal advice. If you think the children are being evacuated from the country, call the police immediately.

The husband and wife also agree that this provision is considered an oversight for such an application and that it may be subject to any official of the office of clerk appointed under the Vital Statistics Act who receives such a request from one of the parties in opposition to that provision and which will be binding.
