Benefits Of Legal Separation

Based on religious reasons, financial reasons or medical reasons, many couples choose to end a marriage through legal separation rather than divorce. All of the same issues that must be addressed in a divorce — child custody, support, alimony, property division, etc. — must be handled in legal separation. Our firm can tailor an approach that meets your specific needs and efficiently guide you through the legal process.

A legal separation can accomplish many purposes for a couple. The separation is finalized immediately upon reaching an agreement and there is no need for the 90-day waiting period that is required to divorce. The agreement can be converted to a decree of dissolution six months after the legal separation decree is filed. Contact our firm to learn more about the process and benefits of a legal separation.
