Separation Agreements

Columbus Separation Agreements Attorney

Understanding Your Legal Alternatives to Divorce

There are a number of ways in which a couple may end or alter their marriage in the state of Ohio. One of these options is a legal separation. This does not end a marriage, but can allow two spouses to decide on issues such as property division, child support and visitation, separate living arrangements, and more. If you’re interested in pursuing a separation agreement, or your spouse has already initiated the process, The Law Office of Dmitriy Borshchak can help you understand your legal options. Our Columbus separation agreements attorney can help you determine if this might be the right solution for you and your family. Our goal is to make the process easier for you, which is why we offer convenient scheduling, as well as affordable legal services and payment plans.

To learn more about how a separation agreement might benefit you, contact our firm at (614) 344-6965 for a free, one-hour case evaluation with an experienced attorney.

The Pros & Cons of Legal Separation

There are many reasons to consider filing a separation agreement. One common reason people choose this option is that they do not wish to divorce for religious, personal, or health care reasons. If you are not able to annul or dissolve your marriage, and you would like to avoid divorce, a legal separation can offer an ideal solution.

Some of the benefits of separation agreements include that they:

  • Allow for a temporary, trial separation period
  • Allow spouses to decide on various matters like child support/custody, property division, and more without actually divorcing
  • Offer a way for two spouses to separate when divorce is not an option for religious or other reasons
  • Allow one spouse to continue receiving benefits, such as health insurance or Social Security through the other spouse
  • Provide a way for couples to continue filing taxes jointly, rather than separately
  • Allow spouses to wait the mandatory 10 years before dissolving their marriage

That being said, there are some cons to legal separation which you should consider carefully before pursuing this option.

Some cons of legal separation include:

  • Separated spouses are still technically married, meaning they cannot re-marry unless they divorce
  • Debts incurred by one spouse after a legal separation can still be the responsibility of both spouses
  • It can prolong the termination of your marriage, should divorce be inevitable

Our Columbus separation agreement attorney can help you understand if a legal separation is a good option for your unique situation. We approach each case with methodical, well-thought-out strategies that are tailored to your specific circumstances.
