Legal Separation in Arizona

Under Arizona statute 25-313, an individual may seek legal separation when "The marriage is irretrievably broken or one or both parties desire to live separate and apart." Legal separation involves the same legally binding attributes of a divorce, including property and debt division, child custody and parenting plans, and provisions for spousal support and child support. However, unlike divorce, both parties maintain their married status, though they often live separately.

Legal separation is not right for everyone or every case, so it is important to consult with an experienced Arizona family law attorney before taking further action. At Lasiter & Jackson, we offer the in-depth counsel and representation you need to determine whether legal separation can work for your situation.

Why Choose Legal Separation?

Those who consider legal separation do so for a variety of reasons, including:

  • To maintain insurance benefits or death benefits for a spouse
  • To assist with immigration issues
  • To pursue further options for reconciliation
  • To mitigate potential financial or material losses in divorce

Attorneys Stephanie Jackson and Nicole Lasiter offer experienced insight and dedicated support for clients throughout Arizona considering legal separation. By providing accurate legal advice and practical solutions, the Phoenix-based law firm of Lasiter & Jackson can help you determine whether legal separation is the right solution for your broken marriage.
