Legal Separation Attorney In Augusta
Smith & Smith Attorneys at Law
There are times when a client chooses to be legally separated from a spouse without actually divorcing. In that case, either by agreement or court order, a separate maintenance order provides for the division of assets, debts, support of a spouse and/or children, child custody and visitation.
Separation agreements must satisfy the general requirements of contract law meaning that there must be two parties with the capacity to contract. A separation agreement can be verbal but it is always best to have any separation agreement in writing for clarity and enforcement purposes.
You can count on Smith & Smith Attorneys at Law to assist you and get you through the process of obtaining a legal separation.
