Divorce Lawyer Dallas TX, Marital Separation:

Sometimes instead of divorce, parties will seek a legal separation. This allows the parties to divide their property, arrange for the shared care and custody of children, and even seek financial support. However, the parties remain legally married, which may be preferable because the spouses may still share insurance and inherit from one another. Moreover a legal separation may serve as a basis for divorce down the road. The attorneys at Pratt Aycock can help counsel you to decide whether or not a legal separation would be your best choice in your marital separation.
