California state info for legal separation
With the divorce rate in our country being over 50%, it’s not uncommon for married couples to realize that they are no longer a “good fit” together, or perhaps they never were.
There are many reasons that married couples may no longer wish to be together – however, that does not always mean that the logical choice is to get divorced.
Keeping the marriage legally intact may be the best option for many couples, especially when religious beliefs prohibit divorce, or you simply wish to divide property and finances without actually becoming single again.
Legal separation allows you to settle many matters like a divorce would, such as:
- Child custody
- Child support
- Child visitation
- Property division
- Spousal support
If you’ve made the decision that you and your spouse are no longer serving each other’s best interests and it’s time for you to separate, you need to discuss your options with a qualified lawyer.
As a certified family law specialist, I have the skills necessary to counsel you on what your best options are and how you should proceed – with either a divorce or a legal separation. I will fully review your case and provide you with the support and legal advice you need to know where you stand now and where you’re going in the future.
