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 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. As with any family law matter, it is important to work with an attorney who can protect your interests. Sullivan Law & Associates has a long history of representing married persons and domestic partners in separation proceedings across Orange County.
