What is a Separation Agreement?
A Separation Agreement is a written agreement that sets out your financial arrangements while you are separated. This agreement is useful if you have not decided whether to divorce or dissolve your civil partnership or marriage.
The agreement should confirm and outline the issues between each person. Determining what assets and responsibilities there are, how they will be fairly divided and what that process will look like. Assets and responsibilities could include, shared monetary assets, cars, houses/properties, joint savings accounts, shared debts, spousal maintenance, child arrangements and/or maintenance, personal belongings, and pets.
Although a Separation Agreement is not legally binding, you are stronger with one than without. If you have a written Separation Agreement it gives each party the opportunity to put their case to the courts, who can then choose to accept your agreement. Allowing both parties to lead separate lives without needing to divorce. A Separation Agreement is also beneficial for longer-term partners who are not married and whose relationships have broken down. Separating people can divide their assets and responsibilities fairly and this is often a more affordable option. For example if one person has moved on to another relationship, bought another house or their financial circumstances have changed, the agreement formalises the separation process to help avoid conflict and misunderstanding in the future.
