What is a Separation Agreement?

Most people who separate have never seen a Separation Agreement.  A Separation Agreement is a contract that provides a legal understanding between both parties regarding issues pertaining to

  • future parenting and decision-making
  • financial responsibilities
  • debt repayment
  • medical expenses
  • life insurance
  • dividing personal property
  • decisions regarding the matrimonial home
  • equalizing the couple’s assets
  • and more.

Separation Agreements can be simple or complex based upon the needs of the couple.  An appropriate agreement deals with all issues to be resolved until the children complete their education.

Raising children is not easy.  There are parenting issues and legal issues to resolve.  Both are important.  Resolving one without the other will not work.
