Separation is often an emotionally charged and stressful time for people. However when couples separate there are a number of important decisions to be made. We can assist you with the separation process ensuring you are fully informed in order to make the best decisions for you and your family. We can advise you on potential maintenance obligations or entitlements and if you have children, we can provide child care, guardianship and child support advice. You don't have to do anything official when you separate from your partner, but a separation agreement can help to keep things clear. These help to make sure you're both clear about the details of your separation, especially if you have children, joint finances or property together.
