Legal Separation Agreements are typically used in one of three circumstances
- The couple is unsure if they are going to divorce but they have decided to live in separate residences for the time-being. In this case, amongst other things, the separation agreement serves to divide their various financial obligations between them. If they have children, the agreement will state what the terms of custody and visitation during their separation.
- The couple intends to divorce and they have agreed on all the important matters of their divorce such as division of assets and debt obligations. The separation agreement affords each spouse a legally enforceable document until their divorce is finalized.
- The couple wishes to separate permanently but maintain their legal marital status.
