Separation Agreements

While a couple that has decided to live separately and apart, to establish themselves as being legally separated, do not necessarily need a separation agreement to formalize the situation, these agreements can be helpful in clearly stating rights and obligations for both parties at the end of a marriage.

Other couples whose religious beliefs discourage the divorce process have been known to favor drafting of a separation agreement for this very reason when a relationship concludes. Such documentation can typically cover anything from child custody and support arrangements, to child support and spousal support, property division, life insurance and any concern that is important to either party.
