Sacramento Separation Agreement Lawyers
Under California law, legal separation can be a valuable tool to change your marital or domestic partnership status without seeking a divorce. While divorce, domestic partnership dissolution and annulment end or invalidate your status as a married person, legal separation does not do so.
Legal separation is often utilized as a step toward permanently ending a relationship, as many people find it as an emotionally less daunting request than that of a divorce. It can also be used as a means of maintaining certain beneficial aspects of marriage or partnership while allowing parties to live separately. Reasons for seeking legal separation include:
- Legal protections for those who do not want to get divorced for religious, financial or family reasons, but who do not want to live with their spouse
- The ability to take advantage of health insurance benefits that married couples and domestic partners enjoy
- Separation of community assets and debts
