Assisting Little Rock Residents With Legal Separation Procedures

Sometimes referred to as separate maintenance or divorce from bed and board, a legal separation can be pursued for many different reasons. Lack of grounds for divorce, religious beliefs, the desire to maintain medical insurance for both spouses and other considerations can all play a part in a couple's decision to separate rather than divorce.

Understanding Legal Separation

Many people wrongly assume that a legal separation means that they must first establish a separate household in order for the separation to be legal. In fact, it is not necessary for a new household to be established. Spouses can live separately under the same roof and still be considered separated. Spouses who have been legally separated for 18 months have grounds to seek a divorce. If you have entered into a covenant marriage, there are additional steps that must be taken and a longer waiting period is required in order obtain a legal separation.

There are some attorneys who do production business in divorces by creating simple generic divorce documents. In many cases, however, the documents they provide will not address the unique circumstances of your situation.
