Our Service

In certain situations couples are not ready to divorce each other or may have religious reasons for not wishing to terminate their marriage. In this instance a separation agreement can be used to record and formalise the terms of the separation.

A separation agreement provides individuals with the proper legal backing so that if a circumstance arises in which one of the parties involved doesn’t adhere to the agreement then it can be legally addressed. 

Our friendly family law solicitors are on hand to help you through separation by providing tailored legal advice to suit your needs. We are here to help you understand the advantages and disadvantages of separation agreements to ensure you understand the best outcome for you.

How does a separation agreement work?

When the initial terms have been declared for the separation agreement these terms must be agreed either directly between the parties involved, the solicitors involved or by a mediation process.

It is important to note that the financials of each party must be fully disclosed with the sufficient evidence to prove the legitimacy of claim. It is highly recommended that this is done with complete honesty as it can cause legal repercussions if not.

The difference between separation agreements and divorce? 

With a divorce the marriage is legally ended and certain assets such as property or finances are legally divided between the two parties in question. Separation agreements offer a different legal conclusion to a divorce. With separation agreements, the parties in question are still legally married however the agreement allows certain responsibilities to be split and agreed upon but with legal foundations as opposed to an informal agreement.
