Formal requirements of separation agreements
*The parties must make full, complete and honest disclosure of their financial circumstances going into the agreement.
*If one term of a separation agreement is voidthen, unless the agreement says otherwise, only that term will fail and the rest of the agreement will continue as a valid agreement that is binding on the parties.
*A separation agreement will not be considered to be invalid just because one party doesn't comply with a term of the agreement, that is, you can't say the whole agreement has been broken because the other party didn't do something he or she was supposed to do.
*While the parties can later agree to do something different than what their agreement says about a particular issue, the remainder of the agreement will remain in force.
