Separation Agreements

Family Law - Separation solicitors image for separation agreements page

If you are contemplating separation or have already separated from your partner you may wish to consider entering into a Separation Agreement.

If you have been married or in a civil partnership for less than a year you cannot issue divorce or dissolution proceedings because of the ‘one year rule’.  A separation agreement can regulate and set out financial arrangements agreed between you as a couple in the event of a subsequent divorce or dissolution.

You may also consider a separation agreement if you are having a ‘trial’ separation before deciding to commence divorce or dissolution proceedings.

How our separation solicitors can help

A separation agreement is not wholly binding in legal terms.  However, a Court will usually uphold one if it has been negotiated between the parties with the benefit of each party having had independent legal advice. A separation solicitor can guide you through the process to ensure you are protected.
