A separation agreement can be made to help decide how your assets will be split upon separation. These can cover the division of property and other capital, childcare arrangements, child support or spousal maintenance, and any other financial aspects. 

When considering the end of a relationship, seeking specialist legal advice can be crucial to ensure a fair process. We can assist you in setting up a separation agreement, obtaining a legal or judicial separation, and allowing you to formally separate from your partner without getting divorced or ending your civil partnership. 

 

What is a separation agreement?

A separation agreement is a written contract that can be beneficial if you are uncertain about divorcing or dissolving your civil partnership, or if you are not yet able to do so. It outlines your financial arrangements while separated and covers various areas, including the payment of mortgage or rent, household bills, living arrangements, debt allocation, division of savings, investments, and other financial assets, as well as childcare arrangements and spousal maintenance.

Separation agreements should provide specific information such as the date you separate and the intentions of both sides in terms of financial commitments and responsibilities like who will pay the bills and how savings will be split.

 

What are the benefits of a separation agreement?

A separation agreement provides flexibility for couples who are uncertain about divorcing or dissolving their civil partnership. 

Although not legally binding, a separation agreement demonstrates that both parties consider the relationship to have ended and can help minimise conflicts by providing clarity and certainty. If properly and fairly negotiated, the court will usually uphold these agreements if challenged, potentially reducing legal costs by avoiding lengthy court proceedings if divorce or dissolution follows.

 

Do I need a lawyer to make a separation agreement?

When creating a separation agreement, seeking legal advice is crucial to ensure that your interests and those of your family are prioritised, minimising the emotional and financial impact. 

You do not need to go to court to make a separation agreement unless you are struggling to agree on how to split your finances. 

It’s a good idea to get specialised legal support when putting together a separation agreement to make sure that everything has been covered, making everything legally binding and leaving little room for dispute.
