Legal separation is a common way for a married couple to take some time away from each other, either to think about their relationship or to prepare for an impending divorce. In this video, you can learn more about this marital status.
In a legal separation, a husband and wife are still married, but they have entered into a legal agreement stating that they will live separately. The agreement also outlines important considerations like property division and child custody. In some states, a period of legal separation is required before a couple can divorce.
If you and your spouse are considering a legal separation, you need an attorney on your side to help you negotiate a fair separation agreement. To schedule an appointment with the family law firm of Fox and Fox Attorneys at Law, call (610) 275-7990 today.
