What is a Legal Separation?
A legal separation addresses several items pertaining to a couple's separation, including:
- Terms of your child custody arrangements
- Specifications regarding child support and spousal support
- Inventory and division of assets
What is the Difference Between Divorce & Legal Separation?
Unlike a divorce, a legal separation is not an official end to your marriage. During a legal separation, a couple decides to live apart but remains married for a variety of reasons.
The advantage of legal separation is that it gives both spouses time to address the complex issues of a difficult marriage and come to a conclusion about how to best proceed.
Dedicated Columbus Family Lawyers
Our dedicated law firm can offer you thoughtful, caring advice and counsel as to the best way to face the terms of your separation, negotiating on your behalf through property division and child visitation arrangements in order to protect your interests. In any case where you or your spouse are not entirely certain whether or not a divorce is the best answer, it is a good idea to consider a legal separation instead.
A legal separation is easily reversed, should you decide not to proceed toward a more permanent life apart. A legal separation also facilitates a smoother divorce, should you decide to continue on that path, as it gives you the opportunity to negotiate the terms of your final separation ahead of time.
