Why Choose Legal Separation Instead of Divorce?
That’s a good question. We frequently find that, after careful consideration, divorce is actually a better choice than legal separation. The important thing is that we offer the personal attention to help you arrive at that decision on your own.
One reason that people may choose legal separation instead of divorce is because they want to untangle their finances. Legal separation prevents one spouse from being held accountable for the other’s debts. While the marriage remains intact, the liabilities that come along with it are gone.
Others want to pursue legal separation as a first step toward divorce. This can be used as a trial period to make final decisions. However, it adds an additional step to the process if you and your spouse do choose to go through with a divorce.
