What is a San Jose Limited Divorce?

Posted by Ahluwalia Law Professional Corporation | Oct 22, 2013 | 0 Comments

There are many different types of divorce in California, all with various advantages that may work for each couple's unique situation. One of these types of divorce is a limited divorce. While this type of divorce is similar to a legal separation, it is a court process that allows the interested parties to work through their custody, assets, and legal issues while also maintaining the legal status of the relationship. This is often a favorable situation when both parties are not at fault and are both interested in working through property division issues.

San Jose divorce lawyer Madan Ahluwalia of Ahluwalia Law P.C. is available to discuss the types of divorce that you can seek and answer any questions that you may have about a limited divorce.

Benefits of a Limited Divorce

Some couples may seek a limited divorce for various reasons, instead of other types of divorce. Many times, it is simply a matter of figuring out what to do next with the assistance of a San Jose divorce law lawyer. Limited divorces are intended to be a mutual agreement. However, others have specific financial or personal reasons for seeking a limited divorce. They are as following:

  • Need to retain health insurance benefits
  • Religious restrictions
  • Potential reconciliation
  • Tax benefits

San Jose Limited Divorce

For the reasons highlighted above, some couples may seek a limited divorce rather than the typical San Jose no-fault divorce or simplified divorce. During the limited divorce proceedings, there are some restrictions that the couple has to maintain. They are as following:

  • Separate residences
  • No sexual relations (either with each other or outside parties)
  • No remarriage
  • Compliance with temporary decisions on custody and assets

Your San Jose Family law can help you work through these restrictions while also mediating you through the process of negotiating custody and dividing assets.
