Our separation solicitors can offer expertise in drawing up a legal agreement. This will help you avoid the uncertainty, expense and stress of potential litigation if you decide to separate from your partner.
Benussi & Co. can help you draw up a separation agreement if you and your partner are considering divorce or dissolution. Separation agreements can also be made if you are an unmarried couple. The agreement will typically set out arrangements for your assets whilst you and your partner are living separately. These can include making arrangements for your shared property, investments and may also include arrangements for your children.
Separation agreements enable couples to plan for the future and provide certainty as to what will happen should the relationship end. For married couples, this can mean agreeing the terms of separation before finalising a divorce or dissolution. A separation agreement can also be useful if you are an unmarried couple who are cohabiting.
Separation Agreements can cover the following;
- Property and Homes: this will cover who has rights to stay in the family home and how property will be divided between you and your partner.
- Childcare: this includes organising child arrangements and agreeing where your children will live and how time will be spent between both parents.
- Finances: this can include agreeing financial arrangements for mortgages, investments and savings.
- Possessions: this could include vehicles and items with sentimental value.
