When a relationship breaks down, individuals can enter into an agreement covering maintenance, care of the children and division of any property as an alternative to divorce or other court proceedings.
These are often used when people cannot or do not yet want to obtain a divorce or other court order but have agreed arrangements and want them to be put in writing. A separation agreement is not a court order but it is enforceable in the same way as any other contract.
We can give you an expert opinion on the proposed terms of such an agreement or suggest appropriate terms to you. We can also draw up appropriate documentation for any agreed arrangements so that they are correctly recorded and put into practice.
