A legal separation is very similar to divorce in that you make agreements with your spouse about issues like how the assets will be split, custody and support, but the outcome after the proceedings have been finalized does not sever the legal relationship between the two spouses. For some couples, divorce is not an option because of religious views, economic situations and sometimes because of health insurance coverage.
If you are interested in information about legal separation or would like to start the process of legal separation, your first step should be to talk with an experienced Glen Burnie divorce attorney who can inform you of your rights and let you know how to keep them protected.
Carefully drafting the appropriate legal agreements regarding your separation will be necessary, especially if there are children involved.
