When you choose our firm, you can trust that you are securing dedicated, knowledgeable representation from an attorney who is truly committed to your goals.

Our experienced attorney can guide you through your options. Call today for a initial case evaluation.

Understanding “Separate Maintenance”

Georgia’s alternative to legal separation is known as separate maintenance. Essentially, this will give the court the power to make rulings for marital issues, but the couple will continue to be legally married.

These issues include, but are certainly not limited to:

What Are the Benefits of Separate Maintenance?

There are many reasons why couples choose to pursue separate maintenance rather than divorce:

  • If you haven’t lived in Georgia for at least 6 months, you cannot file a divorce action. While many couples choose to wait, other individuals may need court action to get support payments.
  • If you aren’t sure if divorce is right for you, living separately can help you take time to figure things out. In the meantime, you can continue to take advantage of health benefits, joint tax returns, and other benefits.
  • If your religious beliefs prevent you from seeking divorce, separate maintenance is a good alternative that can help you receive spousal or child support, as well as implementing a clear-cut visitation schedule.
