A legal separation is a formal process by which a married couple legally separates while remaining legally married. While a legal separation may be an alternative to divorce, it is a proceeding involving the court. The legal separation order may include a division of marital property, debts, maintenance, child custody, and child support. The assistance of an experienced family law attorney will help to ensure that your goals are met and your legal rights are protected. Attorney Vitek will consider your individual needs to obtain a fair and equitable outcome, whether it is through litigation or negotiation and settlement.
