For some spouses, divorce may seem like a drastic step that should not be entered into lightly. Legal separation is a first step that couples who are having marital issues can take before making the final decision to divorce. Separation is an appealing option to many couples who have religious beliefs regarding divorce, want to consider the well-being of their children, or have business interests with their spouse. When one spouse is estranged or in prison, legal separation may also be a viable option. At Fender Law Firm, we have years of experience helping couples file for legal separation and we are here to help you.
Our law firm has been in the family for three generations, so we understand the complexity of family law issues and we work diligently to resolve cases swiftly, so that you and your family can move on to the next chapter in your lives.

Separation can leave the door open for a future reconciliation, or it can confirm the need for a divorce, and either way, we are here to provide you with sound legal counsel and representation.
