There are several reasons why couples may choose to create a separation agreement rather than get a divorce right away. These can include religious beliefs, wanting to keep healthcare benefits, or simply not being ready for a legal divorce proceeding. A married couple may also wish to maintain their legal relationship status or remain legally married.
A written separation agreement outlines important details such as living arrangements, financial support, and custody of children. It also serves as a legally binding document in the event that one spouse tries to go back on their word or make changes without the other’s consent.
