Judicial Separation

Many clients have circumstantial, religious, moral or legal reasons not to file for a divorce. A judicial separation is an alternative option for couples dealing with marital problems in these cases.

Understanding the Difference between Judicial Separation vs. Divorce

Unlike a divorce, a legal separation, the court doesn’t require couples to wait for a year to prove that their marital ties are irreparable. They don’t even have to share extensive details and evidence of the problems they experience. In this regard, judicial separations simplify the situation from a legal perspective.

Conversely, there are some similarities between the legal orders related to financial and child arrangements. Interested clients can request the court to divide joint assets and grant custodial rights if required. The court’s involvement reduces the risk of disputes and ensures that your child’s wellbeing isn’t compromised during separation.
