Separation is a difficult time. When children are involved, they can find the process stressful as well.
Although separation is rarely an easy process, having a separation agreement can be helpful. A separation agreement is an agreement between you and your ex-spouse that governs how you will parent your children. It doesn’t have to be written, but you can have a written agreement if you prefer. This can help promote a sense of stability and consistency for the children of the relationship.
For example, you and your ex-spouse might reach an agreement on how your children will be parented. In this case, the agreement might look like a parenting plan.
If you and your ex-spouse are unable to reach an agreement, there are court processes to help you reach a resolution.
