Separation

What am I entitled to if I divorce or separate from my partner?

Everybody’s situation is different, so there is no simple answer to this question as there are many factors to take into consideration.

If you separate from your partner you will need to consider a range of issues. Sometimes the list of things feels daunting. For example :

  • your living arrangements from now on, and those of your partner
  • what you will do about parenting arrangements: for example, where your child will live, and how and when they will see your ex
  • how to divide your money. Consideration about savings, pensions, debts, maintenance payments and other similar issues will be important to get right as you look to plan your life after separation.
