The possible benefits of North Carolina's separation period

For many North Carolina residents, the prospect of the state's requirement of living apart for 12 months before divorcing seems intolerable. Most people would like to get the divorce over and put it all behind them. However, the 12-month separation period can be used for good in some cases. By choosing to see the possible benefits instead of the disadvantages, you could save your sanity while also getting as well prepared as possible for your upcoming divorce.

Here are some positive ways to view your 12-month separation in North Carolina:

-- During the separation period, you and your spouse could decide to reunite

-- A separation could provide a much-needed cooling off period

-- The time can allow you to evaluate the financial issues of your divorce

-- You can use the time to make important decisions about child support and custody

-- It is possible to reach a full agreement on all divorce issues during the separation period

-- The separation can give you time to plan for your future while still enjoying the financial advantages of being married

The point is that a separation does not have to be negative. In fact, you can spend at least some of the time working with your attorney to address any foreseeable issues that may arise to complicate matters. Attorneys in North Carolina have a great amount of experience helping people with both a legal separation and the separation period the state requires.
