Separation Advice – Having the Right Separation Advice Is Very
Important To Your FamilyNot everyone who is suffering through a bad marriage wants to get a
divorce, whether for religious or personal reasons they are much happier with a separation. Advice however
may still be needed to help you understand exactly what your legal rights are while you are separated and
just what you can expect your spouse to do after the legal separation procedures are over.
Good divorce advice is that if you do not want to use the powers of the courts to place
controls on your separation and can still maintain an amicable relationship with your spouse, you can fill out a
separation agreement that spells out every
detail of the separation.
This a legally binding agreement between both parties in a marriage that spells out how
everything from the family finances to who gets the kids as well as how much the non custodial parent will pay in
support per month.
The major difference between divorce and separation is that as long as you are just
separated , should you and your spouse work out your differences you can easily get back together again, also
with a separation you may have more rights to your spouse's assets should something happen to him without having
to go through the courts.
With a divorce, once the Decree Absolute is issued all details are final and nothing short of
going back to court can change that. While a separation agreement does not mean that you will not end up in court
it can go a long ways towards preventing it.
There are many places to get advice on marriage and separation, you can talk to your friends but
they may have too much of an emotional attachment to give you useful advice. You can talk to your attorney who will
tell you the legal aspects of a separation, but may not be able to help you with the emotional aspects of the
separation. You can turn to the Internet where you will find a host of online forums and web sites that are full of
information on how to protect yourself and your family during your separation until you decide whether or not to
finalize your situation with a divorce.
