We can help you form an effective separation agreement.
To separate from your spouse, you must both live in separate homes. One of you must also consider the separation permanent – you cannot legally be considered separated if you still live in the same home as your spouse, even if your relationship has ended.
Once you and your spouse decide to initiate the legal separation process, you can create a separation agreement to outline terms for various issues related to your separation. Some of these terms can include who will continue to live in the marital home, which spouse will pay specific bills, or where any children you have together will live, for example.
While creating a separation agreement is not legally required to separate from your spouse, it can help you proactively solve many issues that may arise as you work towards ending your marriage. Depending on your situation, you can request that the terms included in your separation agreement become part of your official divorce settlement.
