A. Yes. But the solicitor could only give you generic advice. The solicitor could not act for both of you. If the solicitor sees you both first and thereafter one of you chooses to use this solicitor, the solicitor may not be able to act if there is any conflict of interest. However if the solicitor has only given generic advice and the other party is happy for him/her to act then as long it is recorded in the agreement and the other party has been given a chance to obtain independent legal advice then this should be acceptable by a court.
