Yes, we did share bank accounts, vehicles and so on but we had all these put to closure without dispute. In fact, I told him I am not interested in claiming anything from him at all, likewise he cannot claim anything from me in Singapore. He agreed and he sent me a settlement agreement through email. I did not sign it because the agreement does not look like it has been legally drafted at his end, more over I don't have an American legal counsel to vet through and make sure that the settlement is genuinely written.
The issue I am having now, is that the settlement agreement was not drafted properly and some of the facts written, I require some legal assurance before signing it but he does not want to give me my legal rights to discuss with a legal counsel on my next trip back to Houston, he insist me to have it sign on it ASAP which is unfair at my end.
Can this be done without going through court? Do you have any suggestions? We have no dispute to any claims, besides I have no intention to see him in court for such matter, please advise.
