Separation is not a legal status in Scotland like being married or divorced. If you are married or in a civil partnership and decide to separate, it is often the case that clients wish to put their family and financial matters on a sure footing so that both parties know where they stand going forward.
The breakdown of a relationship is often a harrowing and distressing experience which can be made worse by having no agreement in place to deal with the areas of your life that you and your partner once shared, eg. Children, mortgage, tenancies, vehicles, loans, credit cards, etc. For these reasons, it is becoming more popular in Scotland for clients who are separating to seek a Separation Agreement.
As highly experienced Separation specialists, we can help you take control and make the best decision at a very difficult time. Taking into account the fact that emotions often run high when separating, we provide a calm and reassuring environment in which you can take all the time you need to tell us all about your case.
We will advise you as to whether you need a lawyer at all; whether you should enter into a separation agreement; whether you need court orders to deal with any immediate problems and what your options are going forward.
We will advise you on mediation or conciliation and, if appropriate, how to manage communication in the meantime with your spouse or partner. There are several different types of counselling and mediation available to separating couples and we can tell you what would be the most suitable and cost-effective type for your case.
We make sure that we tell you everything you need to know concerning your situation and your options, and confirm our advice in writing.
We are experts in negotiating, drafting and finalising Settlement Agreements and have years of experience in this area. Contact us for a confidential chat about your circumstances so you can make an informed decision with our expertise and experience to guide you.
