Legal Separation Attorney in Roswell & Alpharetta
A legal separation of a married couple is sometimes the first step toward a divorce.
The couple will be able to separate their lives for a period of time and determine if they are going to work toward rehabilitating their marriage or if a divorce is the inevitable outcome.
If you want to pursue a legal separation in your marriage, contact Elyssa Williams today for a free consultation.
There are many advantages to seeking a legal separation. For one, it is not as final as a divorce, so you don’t have to be committed to ending your marriage right away.
This option gives both individuals some time to think about the marriage and come to a clear decision as to what the future would hold.
The benefits of a legal separation are both financial and family related. They include:
- Clear dividing of assets for use during the separation
- Living arrangements and related expenses
- Child custody and visitation plan
- Child support payments
A legal separation looks a lot like divorce without the finality of the paperwork. A legal separation is often easier to settle because it is not permanent as is a divorce settlement.
If the parties decide to get divorced after a period of time, the divorce settlement will be worked out at that time.
The offices of Elyssa Williams are experienced in working on legal separation cases and would be happy to help you navigate this difficult time. We look forward to your call.
