    Frequently Asked Questions

    How do Separation Agreements work from a practical perspective?

    Depending on the agreement you have reached, you may need to carry out certain actions upon separation such as selling a property and splitting the proceeds equally.

    If either party fails to respect the provisions of the agreement, the other party may take legal action for breach of contract if the terms of the agreement have not been carried out.

    However, if the deed is not drafted correctly then it may not prove to be legally binding.

    It is, therefore, important that both of you receive separate and independent legal advice before signing the agreement, as this may be needed as evidence in any court proceedings to enforce the terms of the agreement.

    Like any contract, the only way to enforce it is to take the matter to court.

    How much does a Separation Agreement cost?

    A Separation Agreement will cost you £599 when using our solicitor drafted service. It’s a full representation service and includes professional legal advice as part of the fixed fee.

    Is a Deed of Separation Agreement legally binding in the UK?

    A separation agreement is not legally binding in its own right. It is a legal contract between separating couples and not a court order, which means it can be challenged in a court in the same way as any other contract can. Although courts in England and Wales are strictly not bound to impose the separation agreement, in reality, an agreement is likely to be upheld if it meets certain conditions.

    Can you be separated but live together?

    When planning a legal separation from your spouse or civil partner one of you will usually want to move out of the family home.

    However, this is not always possible, and is very often due to financial constraints as it may be impossible to sustain two separate homes. Another reason could be the desire to maintain a stable family environment for children.

    Under either of these circumstances you may not want to end your marriage formally and choose instead to be legally separated. This leaves little option other than to be separated but living together in the same house.

    Thankfully you can be legally separated but living together with your partner or spouse, but there are certain rules which must be observed to ensure a court grants you a divorce if or when the time comes. See separated but living together rules for more information.
