Marital Separation Agreements

A marital separation is an ideal family law solution for couples who do not want a legal divorce or who want to try to resolve their marriage conflicts while living apart. Obtaining legal separation (called Separate Maintenance under Georgia Law) can address all issues that would be settled if a divorce is filed. It differs from an informal separation, in which a couple decides to live apart, but there is no court intervention or legal protection of rights. At Boudreaux Law Firm, we understand that there are times when couples are not ready to dissolve the marriage entirely, but they still want legal action and boundaries put in place regarding child custody, visitation, alimony, child support and/or division of assets. We are happy to explain the benefits of a marital separation agreement and help you determine if it is right for you.

Lawyer For Separate Maintenance in Georgia

For some, a separation agreement is what saves their marriage. For others, it can make a future divorce settlement significantly less stressful and easier on the spouses and children involved. Under Georgia law, a separate maintenance agreement simply means that you and your spouse are still married but no longer responsible for each other. It addresses issues of child custody, child support and alimony. Our Augusta law firm understands the specific circumstances that make separate maintenance an appropriate legal action, including those that still need the financial support of a marriage or those that do not believe in filing for divorce due to religious reasons.

As your dedicated family law attorney, we will take the time to understand your unique situation before presenting the options that are available to you. We understand that matters of family law are often emotionally charged and require a compassionate approach. We work hard to defend your rights and uphold your best interests at every turn when drafting a marital separation agreement.
