Legal separation is an appropriate choice when parties want to live apart but not divorce. Couples can live apart without a formal legal separation, however, a court ordered legal document is necessary to provide for the division of assets and debts, for support alimony, for property division and for issues related to time with your child(ren) during the separation. A legal separation essentially follows the steps involved in a divorce proceeding without the ultimate Decree of Divorce being entered. A legal separation can last as long as the parties desire, however, either party always has the right to change the proceeding to a divorce or dissolution of marriage action.
