Once you and your spouse have decided to separate, it may be not possible, or feasible to proceed to the divorce straight away



Once you and your spouse have decided to separate, it may be not possible, or feasible to proceed to the divorce straight away. In this case you may prefer to wait until you have been separated for 2 years before you divorce.

If this is the case it would be sensible to begin to organise the financial side of your separation which is dealt with independently from the divorce itself. A Separation Agreement (also known as a Deed of Separation) is a cost effective way of setting out how the finances in the marriage will be dealt with before the divorce takes place and prior to the finances being formalised in a Consent Order.  Unlike a Consent Order, this document is not legally binding and so alterations can be made but it is a good starting point from which to work when deciding how to divide matrimonial assets.

The divorce process is, in the vast majority of cases, a very straightforward process. Here at Tozers Solicitors LLP we offer a Fixed Fee Service for divorce and we will be happy to provide you with more information on request.
