Efficient Solutions for Maryland Couples Seeking a Separation

Accomplished family law attorneys helping clients separate

There are many reasons why a couple may choose to separate rather than divorce. A separation agreement is a legal document which protects the rights of individuals who choose to live apart from their spouses, which may help ensure a smooth transition into a new life. The family law attorneys of Cynthia H. Clark & Associates, LLC assist individuals who wish to separate from their spouses, either for their own reasons or as a pre-cursor to an impending divorce. The firm puts its collective 30 years of experience to work for every client by taking a team approach to the law, and by creating pro-active strategies designed with its clients’ best interests in mind.

What do separation agreements do?

A separation agreement allows a couple to resolve certain family law issues while living apart in a legally sanctioned way. The agreement may include:

  • Child support and child care, including custody and visitation schedules
  • Asset division, including who will remain in the family home
  • Alimony
  • Health insurance benefits for spouses or for children

A separation agreement is not a divorce, however, and therefore separated couples may not marry another individual until a divorce is finalized.
