Separation Agreements

These are for separating couples where divorce or dissolution is not desired or appropriate and can deal with all issues relating to separation, including financial issues.

Separation agreements are beneficial for both parties as they will normally stop one of the parties from subsequently changing their minds about an agreement that has been reached. It, therefore, safeguards your position because if one of you later refuses to abide by the terms of the agreement you can take the agreement to a Court and request the Court to enforce the terms, as effectively the other party has ‘breached the contract’ between you. 

We can help in drawing up a separation agreement and provide advice on the terms of such agreements. To arrange an appointment contact one of our Family Law experts.

Will the no-fault divorce law be revived in time for next national divorce day

Monday 6 January was dubbed “Divorce Day” by those in the legal profession, as it is the day forecast to be the most likely that couples will start proceedings to separate. However, this year, Divorce Day saw something of a reunification, as the Government re-convened over introducing a “no-fault” divorce.

New decade, new divorce?

With Christmas behind us for another year, the prospect of long dark days of January can take their toll on the best of us. Plus, as the Christmas credit card bills start landing on the doormat, it’s hardly surprising to see why this time of year is also known as Divorce Season.

Why January really starts in November for divorce lawyers

One of the busiest times of the year for a family lawyer is January. There are more new divorce clients than at any other time of the year. This is often attributed to the pressure of the family being together at Christmas. Yule being the straw that broke the camel’s back.
