Separation

There are a number of practical and legal matters to think about when separating, including:

  • how you will actually give effect to your separation;
  • what, if any, safety precautions you will need to take in the event of family violence;
  • what arrangements you will make for your children;
  • how you will divide the property of your relationship; and
  • what, if any, financial assistance or maintenance you will need to seek.
