Legal Separation

Family Law Attorneys assisting you with Separate Maintenance

Georgia couples do have legal options if they aren’t ready for divorce but want to be separated from their spouse. Apart from simply living in separate spaces while legally married (referred to as informal separation), spouses may file for a separate maintenance

Separate maintenance can be a good option for couples who want to stay married for reasons like being able to file a joint tax return or staying on a healthcare plan. Like divorce, separate maintenance allows child custody, child support, and alimony to be decided in court.  

If you are not ready to file divorce, consider an informal separation so you may clear your head and determine the next steps that are best for you and your family. Or, if you are fairly sure you want to divorce but are concerned about certain effects of filing for it, you might want to look at applying for separate maintenance.
