A separation agreement is normally drafted to reflect the terms of any settlement or agreement reached on the breakdown of a relationship. A separation agreement is legally binding. This means that should one of the parties involved in the agreement refuse to keep to the terms following its signature it can be enforced through the courts.
Separation agreements are advantageous to both parties as they will normally stop one of the parties from later changing their minds about an agreement that has been reached.

Enforcement means that the Court will take steps to ensure that the agreement is adhered to by the other party. This is because effectively the other party has ‘breached the contract’ between you. Remedies could include damages (cash payment), payment of your legal fees as well as the terms of the agreement being complied with.
