Sarasota Legal Separation Attorney

When a married couple decides to divorce, it is standard for them to enter into a divorce settlement agreement to resolve matters of child custody, property division and others. However, some separating couples choose not to divorce for their own reasons. In these cases, legal separation may be an appropriate option to resolve some of those issues.

I am H. Stephen Hillebrand, Attorney at Law, and I have been representing individuals and their families in legal separation and related matters for more than 25 years.

Couples who are living separately but still want to remain legally married may do so with a separation agreement. This agreement can resolve issues like child support and parenting time without going through the divorce process. It is a great way for legally separated couples to protect their rights.

I am prepared to pursue your interests and help you receive a fair resolution through whatever means are appropriate. Often we can resolve matters of legal separation by negotiating with your spouse, but if litigation becomes necessary I will be a tenacious advocate on your behalf in court.

If you are already separated and wish to go through with divorce, I can help you file the appropriate documents to do so. Many of the issues are determined the same way in separation as they are in divorce, but there are essential differences and it takes an experienced family law attorney to handle them.
