When a couple first separate, it can be difficult to know where to start and what arrangements need to be made between you moving forwards.
There are many reasons why you may feel that a divorce straight away is not appropriate. However, you may be concerned about how this will affect you in the future, particularly financially, if matters are simply left in abeyance. In this situation, it is possible to enter into a separation agreement, detailing the terms of your separation. This can then be converted into a formal agreement as and when the divorce is eventually commenced.
For married couples, it is vital that any agreement reached with regards to finances is drawn up into an order and lodged with the court (known as a consent order). For unmarried couples, a separation agreement can be drawn up detailing all the arrangements arising from your separation.
Regardless of your circumstances, our team of experts can assist you in reaching an agreement and drawing up the agreement reached into a document for you both to sign. Click on the images below to find out more about the specialisms of each of our solicitors.
