Formalizing Separation Agreements

Just as every divorce situation is unique, the factors involved in a legal separation can vary greatly. The family law attorneys at our firm have represented clients looking to separate based on their religious beliefs. A legal separation can also be beneficial for couples interested in preserving health benefits for a spouse with costly medical needs. This is also a step some individuals take to protect themselves from financially irresponsible spouses.

The factors leading couples towards separation agreements vary, but consistently, couples must be willing to negotiate an amicable solution. At the Law Offices of John A. Guthrie, we work with clients to cooperate with their spouse to address the following legal issues:

  • Child custody and visitation
  • Determining Child support payments
  • Valuation and division of property and assets
  • Property division
  • Spousal support (formerly called alimony)

We are committed to cultivating an environment for you and your spouse to achieve your current and long-term goals.
