IF YOU AND YOUR PARTNER HAVE SEPARATED BUT ARE NOT YET READY FOR A DIVORCE/DISSOLUTION, WE CAN HELP YOU BY DRAFTING A SEPARATION AGREEMENT TO SET OUT THE FINANCIAL AGREEMENT YOU HAVE REACHED PENDING DIVORCE/DISSOLUTION.
Separation agreements are used to set out how parties’ finances and/or child arrangements will be arranged once they have separated. The reason for a separation agreement is so that upon divorce/dissolution, the agreement can be used to evidence the agreement reached.
Separation agreements can cover a range of areas such as, the split of the finances, how and who will pay the mortgage and/or bills, if a party is going to pay any spousal or child maintenance to the other, how the child arrangements will work, who the child/ren will live with etc.
To ensure a separation agreement is as strong as it can be ahead of a divorce/dissolution, both parties should obtain legal advice on its contents.
It is important to consider whether or not a separation agreement is suitable in your circumstances and our family team are here to support and advise you accordingly.
If you need advice regarding the financial arrangements following your discuss divorce/dissolution then please do not hesitate to contact us at either our Hythe or Ashford offices or by email to our Family Chartered Legal Executive at or call her on 01303 233 529.
