Does anyone know if it is possible to make a legal financial arrangement, perhaps witnessed by a notary, without going through a legal separation first. As some of you know I have experienced marital problems in the last year, but because of my advanced age there is no advantage in a divorce. In fact it would be disadvantageous for me as I would lose all rights to my share of his pension if he died. This would leave me just about penniless. He does not want to contest any part of the agreement we have drawn up, but when we consulted solicitors they tried to encourage us to go for a legal separation and (for him) to fight it out. This is not what either of us want, but for my own peace of mind I do want to know where I stand financially.
