Beverly Hills Legal Separations
What Is Legal Separation? Our Attorneys Explain.
When a marriage or domestic partnership is breaking down, Stolar &
Associates, A Professional Law Corporation is focused on helping our clients
find the most appropriate solution. There are a number of situations in
which our lawyers might advise a client to consider legal separation rather
than filing for divorce. Some couples choose to legally separate due to
religious reasons or in hopes of future reconciliation. Legal separation
may bring you and your spouse to a point where you can work out your differences.
On the other hand, you may realize after a period of separation that your
marriage is irretrievably broken and you are ready to file for divorce
Legal separation deals with all the practical elements of divorce, such as:
However, legal separation agreements do not cover the previously mentioned
elements in the event of the death of one spouse. For that reason, our
Beverly Hills family law attorneys may suggest that the legal separation
later be redrafted as a petition for divorce. Our legal team can handle
all of the details and required paperwork so that you can feel more at ease.
Legal Separation for New California Residents
California requires a person filing for divorce to have been a resident
of the state for six months. If you have recently moved to the state you
can often, however, immediately file for legal separation. Our readily
available legal team can help you design a legal separation agreement
that quickly and cost-effectively translates into a divorce agreement
when you have met the residency requirement for filing for divorce.
