Legal Separation Attorney in Louisville

Working with You & Your Spouse to Find Actionable Solutions

It is no secret that marriages all come with numerous ups and downs. If you and your spouse find yourselves in a challenging place in your marriage but are not ready to resort to a divorce, I can help you to examine your options and determine if a legal separation may be right for you. As the Louisville legal separation attorney at the Law Office Of Todd K. Bolus, PLLC, I have over 25 years of experience in working with clients to find the answers that are right for them and their families.

Understanding Legal Separation

Unlike divorce, legal separation does not restore either party to a pre-marriage status. Those who were married and underwent legal separation are not, for example, free to marry another unless and until a full divorce is granted. These separations are a way to outline the legal rights of each party during the separation, as well as guidelines for each to follow. These agreements can include things like how to deal with financial challenges while they are separated, handling child care and custody, and even what actions or events could lead to a reconciliation, or to a divorce.

Why Choose a Legal Separation?

There are several reasons that you and your partner may prefer a legal separation over divorce:

  • Both parties can take the time apart to determine if they are willing and able to find solutions to the existing marital problems
  • Both parties do not wish to be together any longer but are not interested in a divorce for religious or moral reasons
  • Both parties wish to separate but seek to maintain benefits such as Social Security benefits, health insurance, or the freedom to continue filing joint tax returns

Additionally, these processes, when properly filed by a highly skilled family law attorney in Louisville, tend to be simpler and less time-consuming than divorce proceedings.
