In very rare cases, „legal separation“ or „legal separation“ is used by people who do not divorce, who do not wish to break their life partnership or who cannot do so for religious reasons. In our experience, the majority of couples who separate are interested in solving problems by mutual agreement, without resorting to legal proceedings. This involves entering into a legal contract called a separation agreement, which is often referred to when it comes to „legal separation“. There are a lot of challenges to overcome following a divorce – an agreement on financial matters can be one of the most difficult to overcome. The support of a trusted and experienced divorce lawyer can be invaluable when it comes to negotiating how finances are shared by you and your ex-spouse in order to reach a fair and legally binding agreement that would satisfy all parties. However, very few people use it, given that separation agreements in Scotland are legally binding. If you don`t want your „minute of agreement“ to be challenged – because it`s not fair or reasonable – you and your ex-partner (husband, wife or life partner) need to be totally open and honest about your finances. A separation agreement is also called an act of separation. A separation agreement can be prepared by both married couples, life partners and concubbinate couples. The agreement itself defines the allocation of assets and liabilities (i.e.

debt) and the payment of common bills. It is essential that separation agreements are developed and signed appropriately to ensure that they are legally binding and that they will not be challenged in the future by either party.
