WHAT IS DEED OF SEPARATION?


It is an agreement between husband and wife that spells out the terms and conditions governing their relationship during the period where they choose to live apart.

One might choose to reconcile with his or her spouse after signing the Deed of Separation. On the other hand, one might choose to file for a divorce after 3 years (if both parties consent) or after 4 years (if one party does not consent).

WHO IS ELIDGIBLE TO APPLY?


Either spouse is eligible to apply and initiate a Deed of Separation. However do note that the person who initiates the Deed of Separation is the one that bares the full cost of this deed.

CONSIDERATIONS


The following conditions have to be spelt out in the Deed of Separation:

  • Start date of Separation
  • Child Custody
  • Care and control
  • Access
  • Financial Support (Maintenance)
  • Division of Matrimonial Assets

THE PROCEDURE


The procedure is much less complicated compared to divorce as it need not be registered with any government bodies or filed in Court. It can be drafted by any professional solicitor. However, both parties must be agreeable to the terms of the Deed of Separation. Moreover, the deed can be revoked anytime with the consent of both parties.
