Separation Agreement Service for £150.00
Our separation agreement service is managed by highly experienced and qualified family law Solicitors for our clients. They will take the information we need for your separation agreement and from that they will prepare a hand drafted agreement for you to consider and approve.
They will then give you instructions on how to sign your agreement and put it into legal effect for just £150.00 Including VAT saving you over £750.00 compared to using other online services such as the co-operative.
This is because we have purchasing power with the solicitors and can choose panel solicitors who have to meet strict price and quality criteria.
We have dealt with thousands of separation agreements since 1999 and you can be sure your agreement will not only be drafted correctly but also will put your agreement into legal effect.
Reaching an agreement
A separation agreement is also known as a Deed of Separation. It records from the start who is to have what and what both parties’ responsibilities are. It can also help avoid the need for court proceedings at a later stage, when it comes to filing the divorce.
Examples of what can be covered in a Separation Agreement
- How much each party is to pay in respect of the mortgage, rent or household bills until you are able to move.
- How your debts will be split between you.
- How the money from the sale of a home will be split after payment of fees.
- How to separate joint bank accounts and savings.
- Division of personal property such as cars, CD collections, and furniture.
- The payment of any ongoing maintenance for a spouse or children
- Who the children will live with and when they will see the other spouse.
A separation agreement can pretty much deal with anything you want it to and each separation agreement we prepare is unique to the couple who want to enter into it.
Are separation agreements enforceable in court?
The court has to take any prior agreement into account in the event of a matrimonial dispute. As long as the agreement was drawn up without duress and both parties disclosed their income and assets truthfully, the agreement will be upheld.
What happens next?
Once you have paid for your separation agreement to be created, you will need to complete a questionnaire created by our solicitors detailing your agreement.
This is then sent to your drafting Solicitor who will prepare the agreement for you and then it will be e-mailed to you for approval.
You can of course raise any questions at any time, ask for amendments etc, until you are happy the agreement reflects your wishes.
