Testimonial – Client, Tess B.

“From the moment that I filed for divorce and child custody, I had 100% confidence in Brian. Each step of the way he kept me informed and prepared. I found his knowledge and background with divorce and child custody to be more than comforting. He was prompt in all responses or concerns that I had as well. I will most definitely refer a friend to him for his services and I would hire him again in a heartbeat should that ever be necessary. Thanks Brian!" Read more

Legal Separation

Many people wonder if they should consider legal separation before divorce.

If you or your spouse aren’t sure that you want a divorce but feel that some legal space is required to think things through, filing for legal separation is a good option. It is a much softer option, one that doesn’t close the door on reconciliation. You can still get court orders for custody and visitation by obtaining a legal separation. Legal separation also allows you to be granted child support by the court.

Some financial reasons to consider legal separation:

If a non-employee spouse has a pre-existing condition or for some other reason will not be able to get medical insurance, some plans allow you to keep a separated spouse on the employee spouse’s health insurance. You can obtain this by legal separation.

To remain legally married until the ten-year deadline for certain Social Security benefits.

To remain legally married until the ten-year deadline for military pension enforcement advantages or a twenty-year deadline for PX and commissary benefits.
