Legal Separation & Separation Agreements in Irvine, CA

Orange County Family Law Attorneys

If you are married or involved in a registered domestic partnership and are considering separation, it is important to understand what is involved. Legal separation, which involves filing a petition with the court and then a final court judgment regarding the terms of the separation, and a separation agreement, which can be entered into by spouses or partners without the involvement of the court, can offer you a way to live separate and apart without legally terminating your marriage or partnership.

Separation can give spouses or partners time apart to determine whether they want to reconcile, and a separation agreement can serve as a foundation of a divorce agreement later on. As with any family law matter, it is important to work with an attorney who can protect your interests.

Irvine family lawyer Richard Sullivan has been practicing law since 1978 and has tried over 15,000 family law cases.
