Questions on Separation answered

Q. Can we separate legally without getting a divorce?

Q. Is there anything I need to consider if we decide not to divorce, but just to live separately at this stage?

A. It is important to agree on issues relating to day to day issues, such as the care of your children, who your children live with and so on. You should also get proper advice on financial issues to safeguard your rights. Speak to your lawyer for help to resolve these issues.
