Separation & Separation Agreements
When partners make the decision to live apart because their relationship has ended, this is referred to as a "separation." The pair could be in a marital relationship or they could be living as common-law partners while not being married.
Thinking of a Separation Agreement?
Separation Agreements do not legally end a marriage, but they do help to set parameters which resolve some family issues related to assets and liabilities, support, custody access, and could also allow you and your former spouse to provide releases to each other for other issues you do not wish to claim. It is a contract between two parties which can affect the entire family.
