Attorney Assisting Clients with Legal Separation in Illinois

Experienced South Holland family law attorney provides an alternative to divorce

In certain situations, a couple may wish to live apart but do not want to terminate their marriage. The process of obtaining a legal separation is the same as obtaining a divorce. Like a divorce, issues of parental responsibility (custody), parenting time (visitation), child support and maintenance (alimony) are determined by the Court with a legal separation. But unlike a divorce, upon the entry of the Judgment for Legal Separation, the parties are unable to remarry. Also unlike a divorce, the Court will divide assets and debts only if the parties agree to do so.

Choosing between a legal separation and a divorce can be a difficult decision.  I can assist you in making the right choices for your individual circumstances.
