Although similar, a divorce and a legal separation result in entirely different judgments. Education is absolutely required before deciding on one over the other. Those who choose to file for legal separation need to be aware of the ramifications of their decisions and explore all of the potential benefits and downsides of their decision. Consulting with an experienced attorney can offer you guidance through this difficult decision and provide you with the information you need to make the right decision for you. Regardless of your decision, in a legal separation, you will still need to resolve the following issues:
- Child custody, visitation, and support
- Spousal Support
- Property Division
- Debt Division
- Attorney Fees
