Separation agreements are legal documents that set out the terms of a separation between two people. They can be used to spell out things like who will live in which house, take care of the children, and how much money each person will receive in alimony or child support.
You can draft a separation agreement any time after the separation has begun. Separation agreements are vital to settle other family law matters. They set out terms for "trade-offs" where one parent might give up custody of a child in exchange for lower alimony payments, for example.
Separation agreements are not legally binding in any way. But once two people have signed one, they are bound to act on the terms set out. You can change or modify a separation agreement if your partner agrees. Nevertheless, the contracts cannot take away any rights which either person has under law.
Additionally, separation agreements can be used to set terms for the division of property. Some of these might include:
Also, separation agreements between partners who are not married or in a civil partnership must spell out how each person's finances will work during the separation.
