Many separating couples are facing increased pressure to sort out their financial arrangements as the credit crunch continues, according to legal specialists at Net Lawman. Net Lawman advise more couples to consider using a separation agreement to organise their financial arrangements before divorcing.

Sorting out finances is often more stressful than the decision to split but for as little as £39, a couple can obtain a separation agreement which details the financial arrangements, splitting of joint assests maintenance for children and more. This provides much needed reassurance to both parties that their financial situation is settled once and for all

Separation agreements are useful for all separating couples - whether they in the process of getting divorced, are waiting for their two year period to end so that they can legally divorce or who have decided to separate without a divorce. Until a separation agreement is finalised, financial arrangements are effectively 'in limbo'. With the increasing pressure on finances, many couples worry about this whilst they wait for their divorce to be finalised. A separation agreement allows closure on joint financial matters, often providing the cataylst for the individuals to start their new, independent lives. It can be a God-send, both practically and pyschologically.
