Are you contemplating
, but aren't sure that you actually want to file just yet? If so,
you may want to consider signing a
first. This is a legally binding document which states that you and your
spouse will no longer be living together, but haven't officially filed
While you can simply move away from one another and decide not to speak
for a certain period of time, you will not be protected by the law as
you would with a separation agreement in place. This type of contract
is especially important if you have children with your spouse, share property
or a business with your spouse, or want to protect your assets in case
you do decide to divorce.
Keep in mind, you can revoke the agreement at any time and resume your
marriage as usual should you desire. Or, if you feel your marriage has
truly come to an end, you can pursue divorce.
