Separation Agreement or Deed of Separation is basically a written agreement between couples who no longer wish to live together. Through this agreement, both the partners will be able to sort out issues of personal life and agree upon different associated matters such as children, properties, money and/or other assets.
This agreement clearly sets out what is expected from each of the partner after they stop living together so that there is no uncertainty in difficult times. Separation agreement is the best solution if the couple chooses to separate only instead of filing for a divorce
Also called prenup, a pre-nuptial agreement is signed by a couple before they marry and their assets become matrimonial assets.
This agreement sets out guidelines and rules according to which they would like to divide their assets in the event of a divorce.
It is unfortunate but true that around 50% of all marriages result in a divorce and in such a situation the family courts are required to re-distribute the family assets. Hence a prenup is so important.
The agreement is very helpful in avoiding all the hassle at the Family Court as well as preventing unpredictable, unfair and uncertain decisions from the Court.
Divorce petition has to be based upon any 5 potential facts if the couple is legally married and four if they are in a civil partnership.
The couple must show that the relationship has irretrievably broken down based on one or more of the following facts: Adultery, Desertion, Unreasonable Behaviour, 2 years separation with both parties consenting to a divorce or 5 years separation.
Living apart for five years makes you eligible for filing for a divorce even if your spouse doesn’t agree with it.
To acquire legal advice the applicant will have to provide evidence of to support a claim of domestic abuse.
As evidence, the victim(s) may have to disclose injuries or conditions inflicted by domestic abuse if the abuse has been physical.
Domestic abuse could be physical, psychological, mental, sexual, emotional and/or financial.
Courts, health professionals, social services, domestic violence support services, multi-agency risk assessment conference (MARAC) and/or a refuge manager can be contacted for evidence.
