Anonymous Asked:

I was recently presented with a Separation Agreement written, obviously without legal assistance, by my estranged common law spouse. I refused to sign it. But within it he claims that I must respond within two weeks. Is there a legal time limit to such a response?

Answer: No, there is not. You are not required to respond at all, and you are not required to sign a separation agreement. Before you sign anything you need to obtain legal advice. This is not a legal requirement, just good judgment.

You also have the option of commencing Court, if he will not be reasonable. Once Court is commenced there are timelines that do need to be followed.
