edge that they had sufficient time to review the other’s financial statement, are familiar with and understand the
other’s financial statement, had any questions satisfactorily answered, and are satisfied that full and complete finan-
cial disclosure has been made by the other.
3. LEGAL ADVICE. Each party had legal and financial advice, or had the opportunity to consult independent legal
and financial counsel, prior to executing this agreement. Either party’s failure to so consult legal and financial coun-
sel constitutes a waiver of such right. By signing this agreement, each party acknowledges that he or she under-
stands the facts of this agreement, and is aware of his or her legal rights and obligations under this agreement, or
