Two Reasons For Filing Legal Separation vs. Divorce | Santa Clarita DivorceTwo Reasons For Filing Legal Separation vs. Divorce | Santa Clarita Divorce
Today we’re talking about the legal separation process a bit.
I’ve been getting a lot of calls about legal separation, so we’re doing a couple of videos about legal separation specifically.
I usually talk people out of filing for legal separation because I believe there’s only real two reasons you should be filing for legal separation.
One is religion and two is for medical concerns, if you do a legal separation, your spouse can remain on a health insurance in most cases.
I’ll tell you, those two reasons, there isn’t really a compelling reason why you should file for a legal separation as supposed to divorce unless you have some other personal reasons for doing so.
For instance, in another video, we spoke about the fact that filing for legal separation is no faster than filing for divorce because the courts are so busy.
I just wanted to cover that quickly, we do handle legal separation cases. If need more information on legal separation cases feel free to give me a call.
The legal separation process is exactly the same way as a divorce process is. In fact, it’s all the same paperwork and you’ll fill out all the same forms.
The only difference is you check the legal separation box as supposed to the dissolution box and the process is identical.
We can certainly help you if you want to go through a legal separation, we can also obviously help you with your divorce case but feel free to give us a call.
