An online separation agreement can help you by providing the boilerplate language that is common to most separation agreements that are drawn up by divorce attorneys. A separation agreement doesn’t have to be filed, so don’t pay any filing fees online to enact it. The law sees your agreement as a contract, so all the rules outlined in that agreement are enforceable by law even before it has been submitted to the courts. When filing for divorce, having a separation agreement already in place is a great help, and it will certainly make things go faster and more smoothly.

There is not online application route, however, you would have to go through an attorney to settle the details of how you would want the assets and custody of the kids to be handled between your spouse and yourself. In fact, if you have knowledge of it, you can also complete the legal separation yourself.

I don't think that you need to apply online for any separation agreement, as it doesn't have to be filed by law. But to make the agreement a legally recognised one, you would have to go through a lawyer to help you officiate it and take effect. Making it legal can help you enforce the terms within the agreement so that you won't be at an disadvantage.
