Separating from your partner is a stressful and emotional time, no matter who made the decision. You may need time to think about whether you have explored all the options before separating or divorcing.
Separation affects more than just you and your partner. You will need to think about:
- how the children will be provided for (if you have any).
- your living arrangements.
- how you would share the assets and financial resources that you each have, for example your home, income and savings.
- how you will be affected financially now and in the future.
