Separation is where couples have stopped living together as man and wife but have not decided to divorce. Many couples remain separated for a number of years before finally deciding to divorce.
Often couples will want their financial and property affairs to be regulated during the time they are separated. In these circumstances a document called a "Separation Agreement" can be entered into.
It is important that both spouses have the benefit of legal advice from family lawyers before entering into a separation agreement because, once signed, it can be difficult to get out of and might prove to be not in your favour. It is best to come and discuss it with us before agreeing to such a document.
