What Issues Does Legal Separation Address?

There is no legal separation status in Massachusetts. However, some spouses may not want to permanently divorce for tax purposes, religious reasons, and more. If you or your spouse wants to live separately, you can file a separation agreement instead.

An experienced legal separation lawyer can help you file a judgment for separate support. This judgment must include a separation agreement which outlines how the couple’s marital assets are to be divided.

A Separation Agreement May Also Address Issues Such As:

  • Visitation
  • Debt division
  • Child custod
  • Property distribution
  • Child and spousal support
