The agreement can also deal with marital rights and obligations and with issues that might arise if the marriage ends.

A separation agreement is a legally binding contract between two individuals that contains many of the same characteristics as a divorce decree. The individuals remain legally married, even though they are typically physically separated. A separation agreement can be converted into a divorce agreement at a later date if a party elects to file for divorce. Since agreements will have already been established regarding children, support payments and property division, the transition should be relatively easy.
