Would a copy suffice for what?

What is it that you would be doing with the copy?

Was the original that the copy was made from signed off by both parties and the judge?

The original was signed by both parties, and notarized. However, I lost the original. All I have is a copy of the signed marital separation agreement. Would that suffice for the court, or would I have to have the original?

I would be trying to execute it through the court.

Yes, a signed and notarized copy would be admissible because it is legally binding the instant it is signed by the parties.
