If you are considering ending your relationship, but are unsure about starting a divorce immediately or in the near future, but want to sort out and define the arrangements for your finances and children, you may wish to consider entering into a Separation Agreement.
This agreement can specify what has been agreed between you and your husband or wife in relation to income, maintenance and financial support for the children. It can also specify how any property, savings, assets or pensions will be divided to give you peace of mind.
The advantages of a separation agreement are that they are flexible and anything you agree together can be included so you both have certainty as to where you stand legally. A Separation Agreement can only be drawn up if you and your husband or wife agree the terms that are to be included. Please note however, that separation agreements are not legally binding in the same way as a Consent Order in your divorce.
We have a team of specialists who can advise you about the right agreement for your situation and guide you through the process to ensure you are protected.
