If being with your spouse has become a living hell but divorce isn’t in your vocabulary, then a legal separation may be a viable alternative. It’s essentially the same as a divorce but you remain married. It can be a way of protecting yourself both emotionally and financially while still supporting your spouse.
In this episode Mandy Walker and attorney and mediator Michael Travers discuss:
- When a legal separation may be a good option
- The similarities and differences between a legal separation and a divorce
- Using a legal separation as a stepping stone to divorce
Michael Travers practices mostly in Colorado focusing on problem-solving, collaborative law, restorative justice, mediation and victim-offender reconciliation. He can be reached at 303-641-4273.
