Separation Agreements

Separation Agreement Solicitors

A separation agreement, also known as a Deed of Separation, can be used when a relationship has irretrievably broken down, but the couple does not want to start divorce proceedings immediately. A separation agreement is legally binding and agreed upon by the (ex) spouses. The agreement outlines the rights and obligations of each party, covering various aspects, including:

  • What will happen to your shared property?
  • What will happen to personal items, including who keeps what and the timeframe for collecting items?
  • What will happen to finances and business assets?
  • What will happen to joint debts?
  • An overview of maintenance payments for either the partner or children.
  • An overview of parental rights.
  • Provisions for divorce.
  • Further relevant information and documentation.

Solicitor for Deed of Separation Near Me

As with any legally binding agreement, including cohabitation and prenuptial/postnuptial agreements, no two circumstances are the same. Therefore, working with a trusted legal professional when creating your separation agreement is essential. With this, not only can you be sure that all bases have been covered but that you are protected should the agreement ever need to be enforced according to its terms.

For example, a divorce court will adhere to the terms of a Separation Agreement when addressing finances, provided the Deed meets specific conditions. One such condition is that the financial settlement outlined in the agreement aligns with the scope of a reasonable financial resolution. Another condition is that each party should instruct independent legal advice when the Deed is being drafted. With this, Bowsers Solicitors will work closely with the other parties’ legal team to ensure all wishes are met where possible.
