Legal Separation

Barrington Legal Separation AttorneyRichard W. Culver, Ltd., located in Barrington, Illinois, provides legal advice, strategic recommendations, and representation when a client seeks to change the status of the marriage through a legal separation or an annulment.

Legal Separation:

In a Judgment of Legal Separation, the parties live separate and apart, but remain married, usually due to religious beliefs, tax implications, or health or medical insurance needs.


Unlike a Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage or a Judgment of Legal Separation, a Judgment of Declaration of Invalidity of Marriage establishes that a valid marriage never occurred between the parties under Illinois law due to some legal defect.

Due to the complexity, the understanding of the legal and factual issues, and the significant legal implications of a legal separation or an annulment, it is prudent to seek the counsel of a skilled matrimonial and family law attorney. Richard W. Culver, Ltd. can help you explore more about the legal issues involving legal separation or annulment, and we can help guide you through your specific situation.
