Separation, whether you are married, living together or in a Civil Partnership can not only be emotionally devastating but also can have far reaching impact on your children’s and your financial security. We advise anyone considering separation to talk to a specialist family law solicitor to see what the impact of separation may be to them. It is possible to enter in to a Separation Agreement which documents what you have agreed but these should be entered in to only after having taken legal advice as they might not be appropriate in all circumstances.
There are many different things to consider and also you should consider how you are going to try and reach agreement. If you would like more information on the approachs we can offer then please click on one of the following links:
