Separation Agreements can be entered into after separation to formalise an agreement reached between the separated couple. They provide certainty over assets and arrangements in respect of children etc.
A Separation Agreement is drawn up where parties to a marriage have decided the marriage is at an end, but are not yet sure that they wish to pursue a divorce. The purpose of the Separation Agreement is to resolve the finances by way of a contract between the two parties. This way both of you know what is going to happen with your house, who will pay for what and how the children will be financially maintained.
A Separation Agreement does not involve the Court and is a contract between husband and wife only. The agreement will release both parties from their duty to cohabit with one another, and will usually specify a date in the future when the parties will initiate divorce proceedings.
