Kayson Solicitors handled a complex business dispute for me which required very delicate handling. Kam and her team were very professional and great communicators and guided us through negotiating a deal which was fair, even though the other party and their litigators were aggressive and confrontational, i highly recommend them.

Kam Patel at Kaysons helped me as much as they possibly could with a housing and family matter.I was kept in the loop of all proceedings and things were made clear to me .Unfortunately it’s still on going with a barrister as a very complex matter.

I cannot recommend Kayson Solicitors enough. From start to finish, Kam and Lucy were professional, knowledgeable and compassionate. Getting divorced is an emotional process and it was enormously helpful that I had a team behind me that were focused and organised. They reassured and advised me every step of the way so I never felt like I was making life changing decisions alone. I would highly recommend to anyone needing a solicitor. 10 out of 10. I now have the life I desperately needed. Thanks again ladies.

We just used Kayson for our recent house sale and would highly recommend them. A very professional, hard working and friendly team - which hasn't always been our experience with solicitors! They took the time to make sure we were informed and understood each part of the process and always responded quickly to any questions we had. Would definitely choose to work with them again.

Kam and Lucy are exceptional! They are professional, yet caring and really take the time to listen, understand and reassure. They were honest with me throughout my case, so I was prepared for all scenarios but thankfully it concluded well and I got to immigrate with my children. I highly recommend them.
I instructed Kayson Solicitors to help me with sale of my property last year. It was a very complicated matter since I had joint mortgage with an ex partner on my property. They took a pro-active approach and handled the matter professionally. Their client-friendly approach helps you to fully understand the process and puts you at ease. The matter was resolved in a timely manner without any delays in the process. I highly recommend Kayson Solicitors! Big thanks to Kam and her team!

What is a Separation Agreement?

If you are married

separation agreement is usually used when a married couple wants to separate but haven’t decided on whether they want to divorce at this stage or not. The separation agreement outlines the terms each party agrees to. For example the agreement will set out a variety of topics and duties such as who pays the mortgage.

If you are unmarried

Many unmarried couples also find separation agreements a useful way of outlining issues of splitting jointly-held assets. For example an unmarried couple may want to formally agree on how to split the remaining rent owed on a fixed-term tenancy.

 

Why use a separation agreement?

If you have been living with a partner for a considerable amount of time, you are most likely to have been sharing a number of assets which make up normal life such as a home, a car or joint savings bank account. You may have also shared responsibilities such as household bills, mortgage payments and parental responsibilities.

A separation agreement aims to address what will be done with these jointly-held assets and interests and to set out any steps that need to be taken such as selling the family home as a means to split the proceeds generated.

 

When to use a separation agreement

If you are married and are separating

You may wish to draw up a separation agreement as an alternative or prior to divorce, either because you may not want a divorce or because you are unable to begin divorce proceedings at this stage.

In England and Wales you must be married for a period of at least one year before you can apply for divorce. For married couples, using a separation agreement has the advantage of leaving open the chance of reconciliation and it is not necessary to take the matter to Court.

If you are unmarried and are separating

A separation agreement for unmarried couples is a useful way of dealing with the issue of dividing jointly-held assets and responsibilities.

Unmarried couples may find separation decisions difficult as there has been no formal marriage nor the opportunity for agreement on jointly-held assets and responsibilities.

Drawing up a formal agreement is an opportunity for both parties to decide what is just and to mutually acknowledge this decision, reducing the possibility of misunderstandings or unfairness.
