You know, that would seriously be my biggest advice.... don't leave anything vague. I was going through my agreement from 2000 and was shocked how much vague stuff was in there, some to my advantage, some not, some neutral. The thing is when you are going through it all, there are so many emotions, and if there are kids, and you are the parent primarily dealing with them... they become your focus... and rightfully so. BUT what is hard to realize (especially for things further down the road) is that making the best agreement at the time of the divorce is just as important to the kids as what is going on right at that moment. I'd hate to see anyone's child/children not get to go to college because of some vague wording in a document. That phrase "to be revisited at a later time" is a KILLER!
