Some couples prefer to separate now and perhaps divorce in the future. There may also be a desire to formalise the financial arrangements and agreements concerning the children at the time of separation.

A Separation Deed can formally record these arrangements. A Separation Agreement like any other agreement, can form the basis of a legally binding contract between you and whilst the court could, at a later date in divorce proceedings, disagree with the terms of the agreement, it is highly unlikely that it would seek to disturb what you have already agreed between you and have probably already implemented some time beforehand.
