San Diego Separation Agreements Lawyers

As we at Fischer & Van Thiel, LLP, know, when couples in San Diego reach a point in their relationship at which they cannot realistically see themselves continuing their lives together, they may consider divorce; however, this isn’t the only option available for couples in this situation. In some cases, a legal separation, whether for brief or extended periods of time, may be a better option for both partners.

Though a legal separation may be the right choice for some couples, it can be just as complicated as the divorce process. This is due to two reasons: certain legal requirements must be met for a separation to be considered and many couples pursuing separation have a number of issues that need to be addressed, such as child custody and property division. Fortunately, with the help of a skilled lawyer, couples seeking legal separation can handle these issues appropriately and begin moving on with their lives.

Filing a Separation Agreement

Separation agreements can cover a substantial number of different issues, including:

  • Child custody and visitation
  • Alimony
  • Child support
  • Division of property

Having the representation of an attorney when drafting these agreements and dealing with these issues can be critical to ensuring your rights and interests are protected.
