Alternative to Divorce

IMG_0324

A Deed of Separation is a document which can be considered an alternative to a divorce and matrimonial orders. A Deed of Separation may be drawn up and executed by the parties who have been in a relationship (married or unmarried) and who have financial and children issues which require to be documented. It is used where that marriage has broken down and where the parties do not wish to have recourse to the Courts for the purpose of agreeing the terms of the breakdown. A Deed of Separation will make provision for Residence (custody), Contact (access) to children, maintenance, division of matrimonial property and Inheritance Act rights. The terms will be committed to writing and signed by both parties. This is different to a Declaration of Separation.
