Legal Separation in Memphis

Discuss Your Options with Rice Divorce Law

Although legal separation is possible, we do not generally recommend it. You are still married for most purposes (you cannot date). You usually wind up divorced anyway, and instead of paying for one lawsuit, you pay for two. If you are not ready for a divorce but you want to talk things over with someone, we recommend counseling—and we will be glad to recommend some counselors. Do not use a “trial separation” as a substitute for effective marriage counseling. If you want the marriage to work, you will probably need counseling. If you do not want a divorce, counseling is a good way to avoid it—or prepare you if you must go through with it.

  • Nick really does care about the best interest of his clients.

    “I have used Nick on multiple Family Law situations. He helped me during my divorce and child custody years ago and I could not ask for better. He knows the law and is excellent in the courtroom. Nick really does care about the best interest of his clients. I hired Nick a second time this year dealing with a child relocation case. Again he is a professional with family law. He will fight to the very end and not let anything slip through the cracks. He was able to get me everything I wanted and more. If you are in the unfortunate position to need a family lawyer do yourself a favor hire this man, there is no one else I would trust to handle child custody, relocation and divorce! Period!”

    ““I retained Ms. Pfenson last year to fight a motion to modify custody. She is very personable, responsive, and easy to talk to. Seems unusual to find that combination of skills and qualities but Ms. Pfenson has them. I would recommend her to anyone dealing with a family law matter. I feel very confident having her on my side. She plays to win. Highly recommend her.”
