Topics include:
- completing intake questions in the Dialogue Tool
- using the Dialogue Tool to view each spouse's proposals, and negotiate
- sections of the Dialogue Tool: communication, children, income, home, property and debt
- features of the Dialogue Tool, including help and resources
- how to review, edit, and finalize each clause in the Separation Agreement
- how to print your Separation Agreement so a lawyer can review it before you sign
