Word For the Day: Consideration

Something of value given in return for performance or promise of performance by another.   In order for a separation agreement to be valid there must be consideration.  Typically, in a separation agreement, the consideration is the mutual promises and agreements the spouses include in the agreement.  In the absence of mutual promises the separation agreement may not be enforceable.
