Legal Separation Attorney Located in Pasadena, California and Serving the
Greater Los Angeles Area
A legal separation is an identical proceeding to a divorce proceeding,
except that at the end of the case, you remain married to the other spouse.
The same issues found in a divorce are decided in a legal separation proceding.
Why, you might ask, would someone seek a legal separation as opposed to
a divorce? Most commonly individuals seek a legal separation on religious
grounds, to maintain a spouse's health insurance coverage or simply
to be able to file a case in California without having to meet California's
divorce residency requirements.
Legally separated spouses cannot remarry. However certain benefits of marriage
may be retained because the parties technically remain married in the
eyes of the law.
