Separation Agreement


Template: Separation Agreement

Read what Net lawman says about this template:

 "Comprehensive and effective document suitable for a couple (whether married, in a civil partnership, separated or just living together) who wish to record the agreement that they have reached in relation to their living arrangements, finances, children and joint assets and liabilities.

When a relationship ends and partners go their own ways, there can be a great deal of uncertainty as to who will pay previously joint bills, how possessions and assets will be split, and who will look after the children.

For married couples, an agreement like this one (sometimes called a deed of separation) provides certainty as to how each person will live while a divorce is being settled.

It is also suitable for:

  • couples who are separating having not married, and for
  • couples looking to end a civil partnership or same sex union.

This document provides both parties with a degree of protection and certainty in what would otherwise be a very uncertain time.

You should note that no separation agreement is binding in law in the same way that a commercial contract would be. A judge can still change the terms, whether your agreement is based on our template or is written for you by your solicitor."
