I have not posted much or been on here but over a year but I do read this forum every day which has helped me a lot.
I am in the process of finalizing my separation agreement that was originally drawn up by a lawyer and I have made some of my own changes to it. I can't afford to have the lawyer revise at the moment so I am hoping someone here can help me.
I currently have a clause in the separation agreement stating that my husband must keep life insurance and is currently in the name of the children. I have read that is should be named some other way so that if he passes while the children are still minor then I will be able to have those funds for the child support. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to word that so I would get the life insurance for the benefit of the child support?
My children are currently 12 and two are 6. Is it possible at this point in the stage to also add a clause about STBXWH paying half of the car insurance for the children when they reach that age?
I am hoping this gets done as easily as possible but right now I have quite a few things in the separation agreement that I changed. The one thing I think my STBXWH would fight me on is the amount of child support because he "can't afford to live with paying me that much" but he can't keep the kids "like he wants" because of his job.
Thanks again for any help.
