Legal Separation Attorney in Orange County

Legal separation is frequently a pragmatic alternative to divorce. In some married couples’ lives, divorce is simply not an option, with common reasons that include:

  • For religious reasons;
  • Need to maintain the other party on medical insurance;
  • “For the sake of the children”;
  • For other financial concerns.

The California legal separation process is exactly the same as going through a divorce. You will need to establish orders for child custody, child support, spousal support, division of property, and all of the same issues as divorce. However, at the end of a Legal Separation case, you will end up with a Judgment for “Legal Separation” instead of a Judgment for Dissolution of Marriage, and although legally separated, you will remain “Married”.
