Granite Bay Legal Separation Attorneys

Do You Know the Differences Between Legal Separation & Divorce?

Unlike a divorce, a legal separation does not terminate the marital status of a domestic partnership or a marriage, and if one party decides that they would like to proceed with the divorce, it can be modified requesting a dissolution of marriage. Among other reasons, many couples choose to legally separate in order to maintain medical benefits, for tax purposes, or to spend time apart in order to determine whether or not divorce is the next step.

Through the complexities of these separation-related issues, it is important to seek legal counsel from our Granite Bay family law attorneys. Whether your reasoning for legal separation is religious or pragmatic, we can help you complete the process, answer any questions you have, and address your concerns at any point through the process. We maintain open communication with our clients as we work directly with them to reach the best possible solution to their legal issues.

What are the Benefits of Legal Separation in California?

Legal separation offers many benefits for those who do not wish to enter a final divorce decree, such as:

  • You will retain the legal benefits of being married.
  • You and your spouse may live separately.
  • Alleviates concerns over health insurance.
  • Gives you time to determine if you want to get divorced.
  • Allows you to remain married for personal reasons, including religious beliefs.
