Helping Clients Through an Emotionally Challenging Time
Legal separation is not all that dissimilar from divorce in California. The main difference between the two, of course, is that neither party will be able to remarry since they are only separated, but not divorced. Oftentimes, when spouses are unsure if they want to effectively put an end to their marriage, they might opt for a separation to allow themselves some time to consider their wants and needs. If you wish to legally separate from your spouse, contact the team at the Law Offices of Christopher L. Hoglin, P.C. to discuss the details of your situation and learn more about what we can do for you.

- There are mutual tax benefits to remaining married
- Remaining married will allow one spouse to continue to benefit from the other’s healthcare benefits
