Legal Separation Attorney in Manchester, New Hampshire
Many people have heard of a legal separation, but do not always understand what it is. Legal separation is a legal proceeding, not just living apart from your spouse. It is not a pre-requisite to a divorce. The main difference between a legal separation and a divorce is that you are still married at the end of a legal separation case. Sometimes a legal separation is preferable for religious reasons. A legal separation, which can be converted to a divorce in the future, addresses the same financial and parenting issues as in a divorce.
Divorce, or legal separation, in the simplest of terms, is dissolving the partnership with your spouse. You will need to deal with property division, alimony, debts, insurance and if you have minor children, parenting and child support. There is a lot to consider and many decisions that you will need to make.
There is no need to make those decisions alone. A divorce attorney knows the laws and will advise and assist you either in reaching a fair agreement with your spouse, or in making your best possible case to the Judge. And, it doesn’t have to be expensive. There are affordable options for you to get the legal advice you need to protect your rights.
