Legal Separation

Lawrenceville Legal Separations

Are you planning to legally separate?

If you are planning to legally separate from your spouse, contact a Lawrenceville divorce lawyer from The Law Office of Robert L. Booker for legal advice. In a legal separation you are still technically married even though you are no longer living together. A legal separation can give you the time you need to decide if you want to proceed with a divorce without relinquishing any benefits you are receiving as a result of your marriage, such as healthcare coverage. It is also an option for people who:

  • Adhere to religious beliefs that do not support divorce
  • Are morally against divorce
  • Do not want to end the marriage because of their children

Our firm can explain the laws regarding legal separation, and answer any questions you have regarding your responsibilities during the separation. We can also prepare and file your separation petition.

Lawrenceville Divorce Attorney Serving Gwinnett County

When a couple legally separates, the court will issue orders regarding property division, alimony and child support. Many of the courts orders that occur during a legal separation will end up forming the basis of your divorce settlement if you eventually chose to end your marriage. There are no specific time requirements for legal separation before you can file for divorce. You can even live in the same house as your spouse as long as you are not sexually intimate with each other. If you are legally separating, our firm can help you work out agreements with your spouse regarding your assets and any support that may be needed. We can also provide any additional assistance that may be needed before or during your separation.

Contact a Lawrenceville legal separation lawyer for informed legal advice and assistance if you are planning to legally separate.
