Separation vs. Divorce
Orange County Divorce Lawyer
Some couples that are considering divorce may not be ready to make an official commitment to dissolving their marriage. Other couples may just feel they need some time apart before they can go back to the terms and conditions of their wedding vows. Whatever the reason may be, many people in a relationship opt to legally separate prior to or as an alternative to terminating their marriage completely.
An Orange County divorce lawyer from the firm can help anyone considering divorce or separation to understand the specifics of each process. Opting to legally separate allows each individual in a relationship to live apart from one another while remaining married. The time of the separation is officiated by the court and it does not allow for the remarriage of one partner to another person during the time spent apart. Neither party can or will be accused of desertion in cases of legal separation because the decision was reached mutually and legally sanctified.
The Importance of Skilled Representation
Involving a divorce lawyer in the decision to legally separate will allow you to understand and establish all processes and expectations involved in the process. Although you may not be ready for a
divorce mediator who can negotiate the terms of
child custody or
child support it is still a wise idea to involve professional legal assistance at this time. You cannot predict what the time apart from your partner may bring, and having the assistance of an attorney can help you rest more easily knowing that legal defense is always available to you, no matter what circumstances might arise.
