IS Legal Separation THE SAME AS GETTING A DIVORCE?

 Legal Separation is not same as Divorce

     A legal separation is a process whereby couples are legally separated by a judge.

     Often couples who file for a legal separation, do not want to file for a divorce right away, but may want to file for one, in the future. 

 

Parenting, Child Visitation or QDRO Legal Document Preparation...

 Do you need a Parenting, Child Visitation, or QDRO drafted?

     CPNS™ can prepare these documents as well, in addition to your divorce paperwork.

     Couples who are no longer living in the same home or going through a divorce, or legal separation, regardless how each feels for the other, MUST be able to communicate with one another, as adults, for the sake of children born of the marriage.

Name Change...

 Does a legal name change have to be filed when taking a spouse's name or resuming use of a maiden name following a divorce?

     In case of marriage, no a copy of your marriage license will do. 

     ​In case of divorce, no as you can have this verbiage incorporated into your divorce paperwork.  

 

 If you're interested in changing your name or your child(ren), and you're not married, getting married or divorced, CPNS can also help type these documents, based on the information you provide us, so you can legally change your name or that of your child(ren).

Legal services are provided through the CARPLS legal hotline and the CARPLS Domestic Relations Advice Desk. The CARPLS Domestic Relations Advice Desk is located at the Daley Center, in Room CL16.
