What Is Separation?

From a legal perspective and in terms of family law, separation is distinct from divorce. In a separation, you and your partner will often sign a separation agreement between the two of you. This agreement will stipulate on the financial arrangements to be made between you, as well as matters concerning child custody and property management, and is a document that is known as Consent Orders and is approved by the court.

What Should You Not Do During Separation?
