Fort Lauderdale Legal Separation Lawyer

Legal separation does not mean divorce. Some couples go to court to seek spousal support, child support, and child visitation rulings, but do not file for divorce. Couples are still legally married, but may live apart and manage their own property and assets separately.

Divorce often follows this action, but a legal separation does not necessarily mean that divorce is next. There are many reasons for choosing a legal separation instead of a divorce. Some cultures and religions do not allow a couple to divorce, or divorce carries with it a great stigma. Separation is an option for some couples that cannot or choose not to take the final step of divorce because of their beliefs or outside pressure. Couples may also simply be unsure about the future of their marriage, and wish to try separation before they make anything final.
