Separation Agreements

Are you looking for an experienced solicitor or lawyer in separation agreements? Alexander JLO (AJLO), a London-based firm of solicitors provides expert advice and a high quality, sympathetic service that will protect your interests in a separation agreement.

What is a separation agreement?

A separation agreement can be considered as an alternative to divorce, in the sense that it can be used for couples to reach agreement over the distribution of assets, finances and property, defining responsibilities and child arrangements. However, it is important to note that a separation agreement will not legally end a marriage and therefore it does not have the same impact as a divorce. Separation agreements can also be used for unmarried cohabiting couples. The purpose of a separation agreement is to clarify the financial and family arrangements and responsibilities, with a view to avoiding contested proceedings, in the future and speeding up the divorce process (for married couples), if the couple decides to proceed.

How Alexander JLO handles separation agreements

At Alexander JLO, we understand that there are many reasons why a separation agreement may be suitable, whether it be for couples who are unable to get a divorce (for example because they are not married, or for religious or certain financial reasons) or those who just aren’t ready to embark on the divorce process yet. Each couple and separation is different and our solicitors have the expertise to guide you on your separation journey. Alexander JLO specialises in drafting separation agreements for clients. When creating or negotiating your separation agreement, you will need to consider the following:

  • Your assets
  • Finances
  • Children
  • Business matters
  • Any debts

We would be delighted to offer a free initial consultation to discuss your separation agreement requirements; however we are unable to assist with Legal Aid applications.
