Separation Agreement And Death

Therefore, informal separation may appear at this stage as the cheaper and more consensual way to continue. However, problems can arise after the death of an alienated spouse/partner, as the parties are still legally married/life partners. Question from Shawn: My son`s father has died. He was involved in a workplace accident. His family hired a lawyer for illegal death because he died. If money is given to the family, can we seize something of it to pay the child`s outstanding alimony (which is a significant amount)? Is a will prepared during a separation honored? They signed a separation agreement in 2003 and the husband died 5 years later in 2008. The last will of the deceased, a retired lawyer, was the one he prepared himself and signed 5 months before the signing of the separation agreement.
