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.
