Experienced Divorce Lawyers Serving Corona & Beyond

Corona family attorney

For many people, legal separation can serve as an alternative to divorce. Essentially, it functions in the same way as divorce, but without the irreversibility of a final decree of divorce. In addition to the fact that it does not formally end the marriage, there are a few distinct differences.

Before making any decisions, it is important to carefully consider your choices. At the Law Offices of John Joseph Buckey, Jr. & Associates, our divorce awyers in Corona will take the time to get to know you. We will work with you to help you make the decisions that are right for you. We can help you determine whether to choose divorce or legal separation.

Why choose legal separation instead of divorce?

That's a good question. We frequently find that, after careful consideration, divorce is actually a better choice than legal separation. The important thing is that we offer the personal attention to help you arrive at that decision on your own.

One reason that people may choose legal separation instead of divorce is because they want to untangle their finances. Legal separation prevents one spouse from being held accountable for the other's debts. While the marriage remains intact, the liabilities that come along with it are gone.Some choose to legally separate because of deeply held religious convictions which prohibit them from divorcing, or because they hope to salvage the relationship at some point in the future. Others want to pursue legal separation as a first step toward divorce. This can be used as a trial period to test out terms of child custody and child support, property settlement and spousal support without the finality of a divorce settlement. It does, however, add an additional step to the process if you and your spouse do choose to go through with a divorce. While legally separating makes sense for some couples, it is not the best for others.
