Legal separation agreement (also commonly referred to as a marriage separation agreement) is the process by which two individuals agree that they want to legally separate without divorcing or ending their civil partnership. Applicants should sign the separation petition and send it to the nearest Court.
Parties often use the separation agreement as a formal breathing space for them to have their own space and time to work out the future of their marriage or civil partnership. Also, it is good for couples which know that they will divorce as it serves the purpose of a cooling period to let the potential hostilities subside.
It is essential to use a solicitor when drafting up the separation agreement as the terms of the agreement need to be fully understood before made legally binding.
