Grounds for Legal Separation

Do I qualify for legal separation?

Texas state law does not provide for legal separation. When a couple that intends to divorce separates, special temporary orders can be issued by the court regarding property division and support. Any marital property will remain as such until the divorce is finalized and the assets are distributed.

My name is Attorney Juliann Karenko from The Karenko Law Firm, P.A. I have been a family lawyer for 30 years, and can answer any questions you have regarding divorce. If you are separated, I can help you pursue any temporary court orders that may be needed before your case is concluded.

Contact me, Attorney Karenko, to discuss your situation in more detail. My firm can help develop a plan to simplify and expedite the divorce process.

Steps Towards Divorce

There are many steps that will need to be taken when you are intending to divorce, such as:

  • Preparing agreements
  • Filing a divorce petition
  • Mailing a Waiver of Citation to your spouse
  • Giving your spouse legal notice regarding the divorce (contested divorce)
  • Obtaining any necessary temporary orders
  • Attending a divorce hearing

Creating a divorce plan will enable you to more easily achieve your divorce goals. If you are intending to file for divorce, I can help you work out agreements regarding asset distribution, alimony/spousal support, child support and child custody. In contested divorce cases, my firm will provide the strong representation that you will need to protect your rights.

I have served as a Guardian Ad Litem, a legal guardian appointed by the court to represent a child's best interests during litigation. I will ensure you have a thorough understanding of the legal aspects of your case, and provide qualified counsel to help resolve any divorce-related issues.
