Understand the Difference between Legal Separation & Divorce

At Ingram Law, we understand that you want to resolve your case and move forward. I encourage and want to remind you that you did not get married in a day, so you should not try to resolve these complex life experiences in a day. Our team will work efficiently to resolve your matter, but sometimes these cases need additional time and resources to get you a favorable result. If you work with Ingram Law to handle your case, you will have experience and affordable excellence on your side.

If you are considering a legal separation, like many of our former and current clients, you may have concerns about:

  • Differences between a legal separation and a divorce
  • Requirements to get court approval of your separation
  • How property division, debt allocation, and business assets are divided
  • Why legal separation may be the right alternative to divorce

Ingram Law can help you understand exactly what a legal separation entails and determine whether this option is right for you. If we represent you through separation negotiations, we will gather much of the same information we would if you were divorcing. This includes details about your finances, information about the custody agreement you want, and other aspects of your case.

Since no two cases are exactly alike, we will perform a careful assessment of your situation and create a strategic path forward. If you have questions and concerns, turn to Ingram Law. As an experienced Birmingham family lawyer with answers, Attorney Joseph Ingram will offer tireless advocacy.

Alternatives to Divorce in Jefferson County

For some couples, divorce is not an option even if they know that their current marriage arrangement is unsustainable. While not always the case, some of our clients who do get separated eventually get divorced. In such cases, we already have the crucial information necessary to finalize a divorce so the next steps are relatively inexpensive. For other clients, separation is a step toward reconciliation. We will do all we can to support and advise you no matter the challenges you face.

Ingram Law will listen to your story and help in every way possible. You may be uncertain about what steps to take to navigate the Alabama Family Courts. Our Birmingham legal separation attorney will guide you and offer you peace of mind that comes from having a knowledgeable advocate on your side.

Many of our clients seek us out with concerns about:

  • Avoiding combative separation negotiations
  • Retaining insurance through a spouse’s employer after separation
  • Residency and immigration status concerns and their impact on divorce and separation
  • Tax status

The above represent only a limited list of the many possible concerns that you may have. We are prepared for them all. If you are experiencing family challenges, let Ingram Law take care of the bureaucratic details, perform the necessary analysis, and present the legal documents for a formal and binding agreement between you and your spouse. These are the types of things our firm focuses on each day – put our experience to work for you.

      Joe Ingram was the perfect attorney my wife and I needed as we faced being deposed in our ex-son-in-law’s child custody litigation.

      If you ever find yourself in need of an exceptional lawyer that goes above and beyond Joe Ingram is that person.

Joe worked diligently for two years on my husband’s case and through it all kept us calm with continuously assurance “it’s going to be okay”. His case did come out much better than either of us could have imagined. I cannot begin to express my gratitude and appreciation to Joe.
