Unless you had experienced legal counsel when you drafted and executed the “homemade” Separation Agreement, I doubt whether it is legal or valid cannot overemphasize the need for experienced legal counsel when it comes to such vital matters. It is possible to be separated and continue to live in the same quarters but may be open to a challenge.
