Separation Agreements for Married Couples
Sometimes a separation can help couples clear their minds to repair their marriage. A formal separation can also establish how a married couple will live apart, if divorce is not an option. A separation agreement can help you and your spouse agree on:
- Spousal Support
- Child Support & Custody
- Living Arrangements
- Requirements your spouse must meet, such as therapy or counseling, if you are to remain married.
In a perfect world, every marriage would have a happy ending. If your marriage has come to the point that you must formally separate from your spouse, hiring a lawyer to work with you to create a separation agreement can protect you during your separation, and in the event that you do get divorced.
Separation Agreements for Common-Law Couples
Maybe you're not married to your spouse, but you have lived together for a significant period of time. You share a life, and often mix your finances, property, and may even have children together. You want the same thing, at the end of the day, as anyone else who's separating: peace of mind. You want to make sure your kids are happy and healthy. You want to make sure you have enough money to have food on the table and a comfortable place to live. You want to make sure that you have been treated fairly.
