Separation: A Prelude Or Alternative To Divorce

There are numerous reasons why a couple might pursue a legal separation. Whether those reasons reflect a conscious choice – religious or medical reasons – or are driven by legal technicalities – the inability to attain a traditional marriage – it is important to work with an experienced lawyer who can guide you through the process.

A separation agreement is a document that details how certain issues will be resolved. These issues can center on financial or legal matters, and can be as detailed as the parties desire. The Dallas separation agreement attorneys at Criss Law Group, PLLC, are prepared to answer complex questions and provide valuable insight into the legal process.

Through a legal separation, a couple must resolve all of the same issues that would arise in a divorce, including:

  • Child support
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Spousal support
  • Property division
  • Debt division
  • Retirement account division

Whether you are involved in a marriage or domestic partnership, a separation agreement can provide clarity and a framework for the divorce or dissolution of domestic partnership. We encourage you to schedule a consultation with an experienced Texas lawyer so you can discuss your specific concerns in greater detail.
