All states have detailed laws surrounding divorce, but not all states provide a means for legal separation—Florida is a state that does not directly support separation. In spite of this, couples seeking a separation do have options to achieve a legally-binding separation or divorce. It is important to understand the rules of separation and divorce in Boca Raton as dictated by Florida law.
Perhaps the most important difference between divorce and separation in Boca Raton is the end result.
It is important to note that separating couples do not always need to legalize the terms of their separation. If a marriage is short-term, financial issues are uncomplicated, and no children are involved, separating may be as simple as living apart. But, if couples have legalized the terms, and if those terms are working well, they may have already achieved a good start in working toward an uncontested divorce.
Every couple filing divorce and those seeking legal agreement in their separation need the assistance of a divorce attorney in Boca Raton with the skills and experience to protect the interests of their clients.
