Is Legal Separation Right for You?
For many couples in Connecticut, a physical separation provides a “cooling off” period, in which they can test the waters of divorce without jumping in, so to speak.
Additional benefits include:
- Religious reasons: A divorce may be contrary to the beliefs of a spouse’s religion.
- Insurance benefits: You can retain your spouse’s health insurance, life insurance and other insurance benefits even if you are legally separated.
Also, a legal separation can include provisions for most of the issues covered in a divorce, such as child custody and child support and alimony.
If you are seeking a separation, it is important that all of the necessary legal steps be taken with care and precision. An experienced family law attorney can help protect you from any unnecessary risk and prepare you for a more stable and prosperous future.
