If you want to separate from your spouse, but do not yet want to end your marriage, you have two options.

You can negotiate a binding contract with your spouse on issues such as spousal or community maintenance, child custody, child support and property division. Or you can pursue a Decree of Separate Maintenance through the courts. The family law attorneys of Bellon & Maningo, Ltd., can assist you in either approach.

The lawyers of Bellon & Maningo will lead you through each step of the process, helping you negotiate a separation agreement or litigate a resolution to any disputed issues.

Couples may choose a legal separation rather than a divorce for a number of reasons, including continued health insurance coverage for one of the parties. Bellon & Maningo recently represented a client who had a serious health condition. If she had divorced, she would have been unable to obtain health insurance on her own. By choosing a legal separation, she could continue to be covered under her husband’s insurance policy.

Some people may choose legal separation over divorce for religious reasons. Legal separation may also make economic sense. Those who remain married for 10 years may be eligible to receive certain Social Security and/or direct military pension benefits.
