Paul Nassif, husband of Adrienne Maloof, filed a Petition for legal separation today. Adrienne is on the popular television show "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."
A Petition for legal separation is appropriate when the parties want to separate their lives as you would in a dissolution proceeding but who also wish to remain legally married. This could be for religious reasons or personal choice.
In contrast, a Petition for dissolution is requesting that the marriage be terminated and that the parties be restored to the status of unmarried persons.
If you are thinking of filing for dissolution or legal separation, contact our office today to discuss the benefits of each. We look forward to speaking with you!
