What Is Legal Separation?
A separation agreement is made between a married couple that chooses to live apart for a period of time. This document addresses issues such as child custody, parenting time, support payments and property distribution.
There are many reasons a person may seek a legal separation rather than a divorce. Some people are prohibited from filing for divorce due to religious beliefs. Others wish to maintain medical insurance coverage for or from a spouse. Regardless of your specific circumstances, a skilled attorney can explain your rights and ensure your separation agreement protects your interests.
