    Understanding Legal Separation

    Legal separation is a court-recognized status where a married couple remains legally married but lives separately. It allows for the division of assets, determination of child custody and support, and spousal support arrangements, similar to divorce, but without formally ending the marriage.

    Reasons for Choosing Legal Separation

    • Personal Beliefs: Some individuals have religious or moral beliefs that discourage divorce.
    • Financial Considerations: Benefits such as health insurance or tax advantages may be maintained.
    • Time for Decision: Couples may need time apart to decide if they wish to pursue divorce.
    • Complex Residency Requirements: Legal separation can be pursued when divorce residency requirements are not met.
