02. Divorce, Separation, and Annulment

Divorce, Separation, and Annulment

A divorce, separation, or annulment is a substantial life change. Gathering information about your rights and what to expect may seem overwhelming. We give clear explanations of the law, and personalized guidance. 

Generally, the information you need for a divorce, separation, or annulment can be broken down into three categories: 
 

  • If you have children, what will happen to them?
     

  • How are assets and debts divided?
     

  • How are living expenses going to be paid?

You can gather lots of information on the internet, from friends or family who have been through it, and other sources. However, every family is different and you should be careful to get the right information for you. If you would like to receive a tailored overview of the law and how it applies to you, please contact us to schedule a confidential free initial consultation.
 

  Legal Definitions

What is the difference between divorce, separation, and annulment?

A divorce legally dissolves a valid marriage. An annulment declares a marriage to be invalid. In a legal separation, a couple remains married, but usually have terms for each person's obligations while living separate and apart.
