Separation Agreements

Sometimes married couples separate but for one reason or another do not intend to divorce immediately. In these circumstances, it is prudent for a legal document to be drawn up so that each party is aware of their financial obligations to the other and any children of the marriage.

A Separation Agreement can also be drawn up where an unmarried couple separate.

Our Fixed Fee Separation Agreement Includes:
  • Collating the information we need to draft the document
  • Advising on any issues you may need to consider
  • Dealing with the process of voluntary disclosure
  • Drafting the Separation Agreement
  • Arranging for the Separation Agreement to be executed correctly
  • Providing both parties with a copy of the Separation Agreement and storing the original document.

We can prepare a Separation Agreement for a fixed fee of £850 + VAT. This assumes that you and your partner have essentially agreed the terms of your separation so we are not required to enter into any negotiations.

The Courts have made it clear that a Separation Agreement is only likely to be binding if both parties are fully aware of the other’s financial circumstances.

The fixed fee is not appropriate if we need to enter into negotiations with your partner or we need to consider the financial documentation in detail or there are complex issues to be advised upon. In these circumstances we will need to provide you with a detailed estimate of costs. If you think this applies to you we suggest that you book a free telephone consultation with one of our experienced Family Law solicitors to discuss your individual needs.
