Legal Separation v. Divorce… Many people use the term “legal separation” loosely. But what is the real difference between legal separation and divorce? The main difference is that, with legal separation, you remain married. However, you are able to define child custody and visitation, obtain orders for child and spousal support, and divide community property assets and debts…Just like with a divorce.

So, why would people choose legal separation then? This option is best for people who, to name a few:

  1. Have religious beliefs against divorce
  2. Need to stay married for health insurance purposes
  3. Do not meet the residency requirements for filing a divorce at the time they wish to file.

While there are many reasons one may decide one over the other, this is just a sampling. Monica is here to discuss both options and what may be best for you. And will be there to guide and support you down that path.
