Understanding Legal Separation

Although couples may be unsure as to whether or not their current marital situation will warrant a divorce in the future, a legal separation is very much like divorce in terms of how it is handled.

A legal separation can be obtained by filing the required documents, which may specify that you and your spouse must live in different households. Similar to divorce, other factors that may be considered in a legal separation include:

The major difference between a legal separation and a divorce is that with legal separation, you are still married to your spouse and legally responsible and held accountable, for any debts that may have been accrued in the marriage. With a divorce, you can remarry and settle your differences once and for all.
