What Is a Legal Separation?
A legal separation is a court-approved document that legally separates a married couple. It is not necessary to prove that your marriage is broken beyond repair to obtain a legal separation. A legal separation may be the right choice for you if you and your spouse are no longer sharing a life but are not yet ready to end your marriage.
During a legal separation, you and your spouse will continue to be married but will stop sharing a life together. You will no longer be financially responsible for your spouse, and your spouse will no longer be responsible for you. You will also be able to make decisions about your marriage without your spouse's input.
A legal separation can be a helpful step as you and your spouse work on deciding whether to end your marriage. A legal separation document can help you and your spouse gain clarity about the future of your marriage, and it can help you work through conflicts so that you can reach an agreement about the issues that will need to be resolved if you and your spouse decide to end your marriage.
