How is legal separation different from divorce?

21315774_S.jpgThe primary difference between legal separation and divorce is that a couple remains married in the state of a legal divorce. Other than that, legal separation and divorce are very similar, and couples who go through legal separation proceedings will have court-mandated custody rights, visitation rights, and others. Because legal separation allows couples to gain some experience as to how divorced life would be for them, it is often used in instances when a married couple are unsure about their relationship.

Divorce can be good for military couples

10783413_S.jpgMilitary life is not for all couples. Even couples who knew the stakes when they got married may find that years of being stationed across different states or separated by deployments has taken its toll on their once happy life. It is important to remember that this does not mean that your marriage is a failure or a waste. It is completely understandable that the hardships of military life may cause tension in your marriage, but you should work to remember the good times of your marriage instead of the bad times.

Purchasing options can affect property disputes

20774363_S.jpgWhen you and your significant other have been together for an extended period of time, it is likely that you may purchase a large asset together, such as a house. This will likely occur when your relationship is in a healthy and happy state, but you should still consider the consequences should you break up in the future. Unmarried couples' property disputes can be difficult to handle. The way in which you and your partner decide to purchase this property could be the difference between a relatively simple breakup and a serious legal battle.

Seven dead in domestic violence shooting

Thumbnail image for 19014677_S.jpgFamily law covers a wide range of legal matters, including divorce, child custody and prenuptial agreements. While these are perhaps the most common and well-known practices of family law, domestic violence may be the most important because of the potential drastic consequences. This is not to understate the serious impact that a divorce or custody agreement can have on a family, but to raise awareness about a family issue that may not be widely recognized.
