Making the decision to divorce or dissolve your Civil Partnership can be very difficult.
There may be financial, religious or other reasons to consider a trial separation before divorce. This can sometimes take a long time to put in place so clients sometimes decide to enter into a Separation Agreement.
Separation Agreements set out how the parties are to divide their assets during the period of separation but it is also generally intended to include a more final financial settlement between the parties.
If the parties agree to divorce or to dissolve their Civil Partnership the terms of the Separation Agreement can be converted into a consent order which, once approved by the Court, will be legally enforceable.
