Legal Separation

Do you need legal protections in place for a separation, without resorting to a divorce? Most individuals are unaware that simply living in separate residences will not qualify them and their spouse for the protections available by legal separation. Legal separation involves some complex issues and aspects of litigation. You’ll need an experienced lawyer to draw up an agreement that will work for both you and your spouse during the time of separation. 

Legal separation can be a wise alternative to divorce in several situations. For many, it retains many of the legal advantages of marriage, but enables couples to come to an agreement regarding child custody, division of assets, and spousal support (alimony). For others, it can be a way to reach an agreement about living conditions during a preliminary period where they can live separately and decide whether divorce is actually the right decision for them and their family.
