A trial separation between two people (who are a couple) may be an opportunity to give partners space and time in their relationship to consider their future. It is a time for reassessing feelings and commitment to the relationship, and may lead to a reinvigorated marriage or partnership as much as leading to a permanent separation and divorce.

Caroline Chung can help you through your separation by providing connections to mediation and counselling facilities as well as advice so that you think about your legal rights and your financial security. If you have children, it may be important to think about family counselling and the impact that your decisions may have on your children – emotionally, physically and financially.

Please contact us if you have any legal questions about separation relating to family law.
