Legal Separation Advice from Scottsdale Divorce Attorneys and Child Custody Lawyers

Divorce can be a difficult decision. For those who are not ready to officially dissolve their marriage, or for those who do not want to get a divorce for religious, cultural or other personal reasons, legal separation may be a good option. For all intents and purposes, this process is like a divorce, but the couple is still legally married.

Sometimes couples do not know whether divorce or legal separation in Scottsdale is the best option for them. If you are struggling to decide which option is best, the Law Office of Karen Schoenau can help. Our attorneys carefully explain the differences and legal ramifications of each. We make sure that you have all the information so you can make a sound decision about your future.

Legal Separation Issues in Arizona

Couples getting a legal separation must determine the same issues as in a divorce, including:

This means that the procedures for determining these issues are also like that in a divorce, such as fact gathering, negotiating, and litigating. This also means that if there is a significant change in circumstances after the legal separation in Scottsdale, parties will need to make a formal modification of the order with the court.

At the Law Office of Karen Schoenau, our lawyers serve as strong client advocates in these matters. We work hard to protect our clients’ interests and achieve a positive outcome through negotiations or courtroom action if necessary.
