What is a Separation Agreement?

Sometimes a relationship breaks down and the parties have not decided whether they wish to finalise their separation by applying for a divorce but may decide to have a trial separation.

It is advisable that independent legal advice be obtained to ensure you are protected and any intentions that spouses or civil partners are recorded in a document. This document is called a Separation Agreement and it will include agreements as to how any assets are to be divided during the separation period and in the event of a formal permanent separation and divorce. You should have independent legal advice before entering into such a document to avoid your position being prejudiced. A carefully drafted document may give a peace of mind and offer couples the space and time they need to reach decisions about their relationship.
