Efficient Solutions for Maryland Couples Seeking a Separation
Accomplished family law attorneys helping clients separate
There are many reasons why a couple may choose to separate rather than divorce. A separation agreement is a legal document which protects the rights of individuals who choose to live apart from their spouses, which may help ensure a smooth transition into a new life. The family law attorneys of Peters & Clark, P.A. assist individuals who wish to separate from their spouses, either for their own reasons or as a pre-cursor to an impending divorce. The firm puts its collective 75 years of experience to work for every client by taking a team approach to the law, and by creating pro-active strategies designed with its clients’ best interests in mind.
What do separation agreements do?
A separation agreement allows a couple to resolve certain family law issues while living apart in a legally sanctioned way. The agreement may include:
- Child support and child care, including custody and visitation schedules
- Asset division, including who will remain in the family home
- Health insurance benefits for spouses or for children
A separation agreement is not a divorce, however, and therefore separated couples may not marry another individual until a divorce is finalized.
