What is the timeframe for acquiring a legal separation ca.
1 attorney answer
According to the web site of the Superior Court of California for the County of Sacramento, a Separation is effective when the judge signs the judgment, without requiring a six month waiting period. Of course, you will not be free to remarry. Please also make sure you are not confusing date of separation with a legal separation.
The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advise" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. I am only licensed in California.
