Hello
This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard
I suggest that the agreement will want to reflect the following and can be stated similar to
The parties herein agree THAT:
1) The parties are separating (or have separated) and have the right to live separate and apart from each other as if single and unmarried.
2) Neither party shall harass, molest or interfere with the other.
3) Neither party shall incur debts in the other's name.
4) Breach of the agreement will allow recovery of attorney's fees, damages and, if applicable, enforcement by specific performance.

So do list items 1-4 for the grounds for divorce??
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
(Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Family Lawyer: Samuel II, Attorney at Law replied 3 years ago
HelloI can continue here. I do not participate in the phone call program offered on this website. I am not sure what you mean the grounds for divorce? I understood it that you both agree to the divorce and so there are no grounds, other than living separate and apart for a year and then filing. And in the meantime, your Marital Separation Agreement will disclose and resolve issues such as alimony, child custody if needed, who lives in the marital home at this time, etc. But you requested the General Release language for the MSA and that is what I provided.
