Legal separation is an alternate to divorce that couples may choose. The process of legal separation is much different than the divorce process in Georgia, so it is important you work with an attorney who is experienced in handling such matters. At Baskin & Baskin, P.C., we have represented a number of clients in legal separation and have in-depth knowledge of the law.
Our Georgia law firm has a reputation for providing quality legal services for family law matters. We have more than 30 years of experience representing men and women in divorce, property division, domestic partnerships, custody and other family law matters. Our attorneys also have significant experience handling appeals.
Legal Separation in Georgia
Legal separation is meant to protect both spouses until a decision is made about divorce. The separation agreement will outline matters such as property division, alimony and child support. Our Marietta legal separation lawyers will file the petition on your behalf (petition for permanent alimony without divorce pending) and explain your rights and obligations. We are here to answer questions that may arise, including:
- Can I keep my benefits?
- How will my retirement account be affected?
- Can we still file joint taxes?
- What are the benefits to legal separation?
If you have contemplated seeking legal separation, it is important to become educated about the differences between divorce and legal separation and what the benefits are to each. We are here to provide the guidance you need.
