State of California info on legal separation
Making the decision to legally separate from your spouse is a difficult one and requires significant thought and care. While you may be certain that your relationship will no longer be the same, you may be unsure of what steps you need to take in order to pursue a legal separation.
At OC Family Law & Divorce we have worked with a number of clients seeking legal separation and have the skills and experience to provide you with sound legal advice and compassionate representation.
What Is Legal Separation?
In California, legal separation is different from divorce in many ways. For example, you can remarry after a divorce, but you cannot remarry after you are granted a legal separation, since the marriage has not been legally ended. However, you can obtain court orders pertaining to child custody, visitation, property division and alimony the same as you would in the event you were seeking a divorce. Legal separation may be preferable to some couples for a variety of reasons, including religious convictions, or the desire to maintain a legally married status for insurance or pension purposes.
