A separation agreement is for married or unmarried couples who intend to separate and want a legal document drawn up to confirm arrangements for their finances.
Entering into a separation agreement could help you avoid disputes over household bills, possessions, how best to deal with joint assets and how best to help any children involved. This type of agreement is not a court order and the court is not involved in preparing it. For this reason the terms of a separation agreement are not strictly speaking legally binding. But the courts are becoming far more willing to consider the terms of a separation agreement when it comes to divorce proceedings later on.
Our specialist team can advise and draft bespoke separation agreements to suit all circumstances.
Separation Agreements can be completed at all of our offices with a family law expert.
