Legal Separation

Easing your family through a big transition.

Divorce is a life-altering step to take, and it comes with a slew of irreversible changes. If you and your spouse aren’t yet sure if dissolving your marriage is the best choice, mediating a legal separation can be a good first step. To begin with, mediation is the quickest and most effective way to work through the family law issues that commonly accompany a separation or dissolution, such as custody and visitation, child support, or spousal support. In mediation, you can craft a plan that lets you move on with your new life, knowing that you have the protection of court orders in place.

Mediating a legal separation instead of immediately filing for divorce can save you thousands of dollars and a great deal of time. And mediation keeps you away from the crowded court system, which is both public and rife with frustrating delays. At the Law Offices of Jennifer Owens, we have helped many couples successfully mediate a legal separation as they transition to the next phase of their lives. We are experienced in the separation process, and know how to make it as painless as possible.
