Considering Legal Separation from Your Spouse?

Divorce is never a one-size-fits-all process. In California, in fact, it is possible to resolve many of the issues typically at dispute in a divorce — and secure many of the same rights as well — without having to go through the formal, legal divorce process.

At Pedrick Law Group, APC, we will guide you, helping you find the best solution when facing marital uncertainty. Our experienced attorneys will counsel you regarding the advantages and disadvantages of formal divorce and legal separation. If you are already set on separation, then we are ready to help you finalize the decision.

Why Choosing Legal Separation May Be Advantageous

Some people pursue legal separation instead of a divorce when there has been marital infidelity or financial trouble, but the spouses remain unsure whether they want to formally divorce. In certain cases, individuals who wish to separate must abide by religious obligations forbidding divorce.

In most cases, however, spouses use legal separation strategically, typically to preserve important health or other benefits for one of the spouses. Depending on your specific legal needs — and the nature of your relationship with your spouse — you may find that a legal separation can protect both parties' (or spouses') legal interests. If this is the case, we can help you with every stage of a legal separation filing.
