PASADENA LEGAL SEPARATION ATTORNEY

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 Pasadena legal separation lawyers 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.

Understanding the Legal Separation Process in Pasadena

When a couple legally separates, you will have to cover the same issues that are addressed in a divorce, except your marital status, which will remain the same.

Some of the key issues you will need to resolve in a legal separation include:

As you can see, these are all the same family law matters you would find in a divorce settlement.

What Are the Benefits of a Legal Separation?

Given the numerous similarities legal separations and divorce share, you might be wondering why anyone would choose to legally separate instead of divorce. Depending on your circumstances and needs, a legal separation might be more suitable.

Here are some of the reasons why people choose to legally separate instead of divorce:

  • Both parties are opposed to divorce for religious or moral reasons
  • There are mutual tax benefits to remaining married
  • Remaining married will allow one spouse to continue to benefit from the other’s healthcare benefits
  • There is a chance of reconciliation
  • You do not meet your state’s residency requirements for a divorce
