Separation Agreements

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 and cannot yet issue divorce or dissolution proceedings because of the ‘one year rule’ you may consider entering in to a separation agreement. This type of 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.

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. Our team of solicitors can guide you through the process to ensure you are protected.
