Separation agreements

A separation agreement resolves questions about finance and children’s care while you are separated from your partner. While a separation agreement does not have the force of law, which means that a court might vary its contents or change elements you’d previously agreed, many couples find that creating a separation agreement can make any subsequet proceedings less stressful and shorten the time taken to get a divorce. If you are ready to discuss a separation, our expert divorce lawyers can help you create a separation agreement that gives you peace of mind.
