Deciding Between Legal Separation or Divorce

No one ever goes into marriage making plans for things to go south down the road.   However, at times, couples decide to part ways for many different reasons. The “parting of ways” can look very different in many couples’ lives. Many choose divorce, a permanent choice. Many also choose a legal separation. Both choices have their benefits and challenges. The best thing to keep in mind is that you’ll want to consider the bigger picture and all aspects of your parting before you make a decision which route you will want to take.

Legal Separation
With legal separation, it does not matter how long you have been separated, under such an agreement, and no matter how estranged you may be you remain legally married. This means that neither spouse may legally remarry, and that laws applying to spouses regarding inheritance, taxation, Social Security, and other matters will continue to apply. Legal separation is a good option for couples that, for religious purposes, do not accept the option of divorce. It also keeps the door open for future reconciliation.
Divorce
Divorce is a permanent and complete dissolving of your marriage. This is one of the hardest decisions you will face it your life. This decision comes with much to consider for families, especially those with children. The good news about divorce is that there are several options for your divorce.

Deciding legal separation or divorce is one of the most important decisions you will make if you decide to part ways with your spouse. Contact the law office of Tom Rowsey, in Georgia to help you legally navigate this difficult part of your life.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
