Legal separation grants the same legal effects as divorce. For a variety of reasons, you may need to take steps to end your marriage, but are not certain that a divorce is the correct final step at this time. At John T Fields and Associates, our Milwaukee divorce lawyers will help you reach an equitable resolution of your uncontested or contested legal separation. After legal separation, you remain married in the eyes of the court, but are effectively divorced for all other purposes. You will retain the option to dismiss the legal separation and resume married life in the future or to convert the legal separation to a formal divorce sometime in the future.
Our Milwaukee area divorce lawyers fight like a pit bull to protect you and your children.
John Fields, the founder of our Milwaukee law firm, provides the same aggressive advocacy that he provides in divorce proceedings to clients seeking a legal separation. Similar to divorce, a legal separation can be contested with couples waging war against each other over custody, child support, and alimony. You have rights that need aggressive protection. Our Waukesha area divorce lawyers' job is to protect those rights and to seek to secure what you want.
Whether you desire legal separation instead of divorce for religious reasons or for monetary reasons such as the need for health insurance, the approach to legal separation is the same as the approach to divorce and you need an advocate on your side to make sure that your rights are protected during legal separation. Our Milwaukee divorce lawyers will protect your rights and fight for a fair resolution of all issues in your legal separation including property division, child support, child custody and alimony.
