Should You Consider Legal Separation Instead of Divorce?
Divorce is not always an option for everyone. There are many reasons why couples choose to pursue alternative options. These could range from religious reasons to financial concerns and anything in between. If divorce is something that you are just not willing to consider, you might want to think about a legal separation.
Legal separation can provide you with many of the same protections that divorce does, but without the added pressure of a heated court battle and the finality of divorce.
At Holstrom, Block & Parke, we know that no matter what you choose, you are going to need a team of professional family lawyers who can help you navigate the complex legal processes. Our Southern California legal separation attorneys can lay out your options for you so that you can make the call on the best course of action.
What Does “Legal Separation” Mean?
According to the Superior Court of California, there is more to a legal separation than one of the parties simply moving out. In most ways, getting a legal separation is extremely similar to a divorce. Things like child custody, child support, and spousal support are issues that must be decided before separation can be finalized.
Like a divorce, it is important that you come up with an agreement that is suitable to you for the long-term future. The issues that you deal with in your separation agreement will be things that will be there for many years to come. Whether you have chosen a legal separation for religious reasons, financial reasons, or you simply want to leave the option of reconciliation still on the table, it is important that you come up with the best possible agreement for you.
