A Separation Agreement is a legal document and domestic contract representing a written and enforceable agreement between the parties that addresses some or all of the issues arising from their separation. Separation Agreements can be temporary or final; they can be limited to a few issues or entirely comprehensive.

Separation Agreements are often negotiated between parties and their respective lawyers. Parties may also reach agreements at mediation, with or without counsel, and then seek to incorporate the terms of this settlement into a legal Separation Agreement.

Separation Agreements obtained through negotiation or mediation are frequently a timelier, more amicable, and more cost-efficient means of resolving family issues than court proceedings.
