If your spouse does not agree to the provision set forth in the petition he/she has a right to file a counter-petition.If this is done and you can’t come to an agreement via mediation you will have to go before a judge to settle the issues you were unable to agree upon.In some cases, a legal separation can be as complicated as obtaining a divorce. If your spouse agrees to the provisions in the petition all you will need is for both spouses to sign and notarize the agreement so the court clerk can enter it into the court records for approval by a judge.
