Legal Separation Lawyer

Many couples would prefer to complete a legal separation rather than a divorce for reasons such as financial benefits, religious beliefs or to keep their family together for the benefit of their children. A legal separation can also give couples time to resolve the issues they may have in relation to financial assets and child custody. Once these issues have been dealt with either party is then free to institute an action for divorce without further stress knowing these issues have all been discussed and resolved.
