Obviously you have either option to consider.
The advantage of a judicial separation is that you have not ended the marriage, so it is not a declaration that the marriage is over.
Pensions - you can't claim on under a judicial separation. You would need to be divorced to apply for a pension sharing order.
Other finances can be agreed though under a judicial separation.
Mediation is obviously a requirement and it will clarify the issues, I hope.
If that is something you feel is fair in the circumstances it could work for you, yes.
Yes. That's correct, as you are still technically married a court cannot divide the pensions.
Yes of course.
If you have further questions, you can always come back to me.
