How Our Separation Agreement Kit Works
1) You pay for and download your separation agreement package.
2) You fill in the blanks on the template.
This customizes your separation agreement to you specifically.
3) You call us to book your independent legal advice session.
This step you would take after you have finished filling out the template.
And, if you get stuck along the way you can call and request a Q&A session so you get the help you need to fill it out properly. There is a small fee for your Q&A session but it’s well worth the cost if you do have questions so you keep your Independent Legal Advice session to get advice on how to handle the more difficult things within your agreement or to discuss things that you and your spouse might be having a hard time deciding upon.
AP Lawyers assumes no responsibility for the drafting of your Agreement. YOU assume full responsibility for the drafting of your agreement. You are expected to customize the agreement to suit your particular circumstances. AP Lawyers shall provide you with a certificate of independent legal advice. You are solely responsible for implementing their advice. AP Lawyers will not confirm whether or not any proposed changes have been made. We will not witness the signing of your Agreement.
