An interesting trend that emerges from the survey is that the less experienced lawyers have calculated the largest number for the provision of ILA for separation agreements. Those with more than 20 years of experience were at the lower than average end of the royalty range. It is essential that both parties obtained an independent legal advice certificate and attached it to the agreement as part of the annexes. Many online articles suggest that it is not necessary to have their separation agreement checked by a lawyer, but they are not familiar with the case law in this area.
At Shaikh Law, we are an experienced lawyer who regularly works in separation agreement and divorce. If no certificate of independent legal advice is attached, one of the spouses/partners can easily claim that he did not understand the terms of the agreement, which is fundamental to canceling a valid agreement.
