Why not just file for divorce?
divorce is the best solution for a strained marriage. Individuals can no longer
see continuing the relationship and move toward a permanent separation.
However, some couples wrongly believe divorce is their only option.
Separation affords couples the following benefits:
- In many cases, a legal separation allows the continuation of health benefits
for a dependent spouse. This can ease the transition of couples seeking
to amiably move in different directions.
- Individuals have the time to step away from the intensity of conflict that
often characterizes households filing for divorce, and decide if a divorce
is the correct course of action.
- In military couples, spouses qualify for lifetime health benefits after
10 years of marriage. A legal separation can allow individuals to live
separately while waiting for this time to pass.
- Social Security benefits also extend to couples who have been married for
10 years. A legal separation can allow individuals to qualify for these
benefits, despite separate living quarters.
Choose Our Skilled Family Law Firm
It is not legally advisable for couples to decide to live in separate residences
without formalizing the separation. The failure to use an attorney to
draw up a legally binding document can create significant conflict if
disputes arise pertaining to childcare, distribution of possessions, or
ownership of property. We have earned an
Excellent rating on Avvo for our exceptional, reasonably priced service to clients, as we help you
navigate the unfamiliar waters.
