Having a legal Separation Agreement in place means you and your former partner both know where you stand now you are no longer together.


It can help clarify financial and parenting responsibilities, avoid unnecessary animosity and avoid future conflict between both parties.

This might include arrangements for any children, such as where they will live and maintenance; how much you both contribute to rent/mortgage of any property; how to deal with mutual debts; what to do with shared items, such as TVs, cars, or furniture; and what will happen to any family pets.
