A separation agreement is a legally binding contract. Two individuals who cohabited, not necessarily married, can be parties to a separation agreement. In a separation agreement, parties have the power to settle and deal with all aspects of their respective rights and obligations, including:
- property rights
- support rights
- allocation of debts
- right to custody and access to children
- right to direct the education and moral training of children
- and any other related aspects
For parties to agree on the terms of a separation agreement, they do not need to apply to court. A well drafted separation agreement may oust the jurisdiction of the court and be final and conclusive.
