A legal separation can be an alternative option to filing for divorce. While a divorce permanently ends a marital relationship, a legal separation leaves the marriage in place. However, you may still ask the court to divide up debts and property, while also resolving custody, support, and alimony issues.
Couples’ separations can involve a number of different aspects such as judicial actions and negotiated stipulations. No matter what situation you find yourself in, turn to McGuire Condon Mangan, P.C. Since 2000, our firm has been guiding clients through the legal separation process.
