You can always withdraw a petition, of course, but most people do that because they want to be like Frank Sinatra and let me try again. But to follow it by a Separation Agreement - well it leaves you still in holy matrimony, so neither of you is free to marry. I'm not sure what advantage you get out of a separation agreement, unless, of course, you want to leave the door open for a possible resumption of marital relations. It would probably be sensible to review your wills in any event.
I dont want him back, its nothing like that, just a bit too soon realy for divorce I think. A sep agreement will just put my mind at rest for a while untill I feel strong enough for this divorce.
That makes sense I suppose. Divorce is a bad place to be and if your not ready then I suppose a sep deed is just the ticket. This can be carried into divorce and made into an order or just binned when the time comes. Seperation also allows time to adjust to life without each other. Not divorcing just delays moving on in your head so its a 2 edged sword. Chris
