Visitation & Possession
Separation agreements can be entered into when the parties wish to separate yet not divorce. This may happen for a variety of reasons, such as health insurance benefits, military benefits, religious reasons, or numerous other reasons. Regardless of the reason, it is imperative that you consult with an experienced family law attorney before entering into or signing a separation agreement, as they are legally binding and enforceable on the parties just like a contract.
The major difference between separation agreements and divorce is that the parties remain legally married. However, despite being legally married, the separation agreement can still divide all current and future assets and debts. If there are children involved, the agreement will also address custody, possession, and support of the children.
Finally, it is important to understand that a separation agreement will not allow either of the parties to remarry someone else until and unless there is an actual divorce legally ending the marriage between the parties.
