What is Legal Separation?

One popular alternative to divorce is legal separation, which is a court-ordered arrangement whereby a married couple lives apart, leading separate lives. This option for separation usually occurs when the couple is unsure of the state of their marriage but is sure that they want to establish financial boundaries and responsibilities. These financial arrangements may include asset separation, custody of dependent children, and child support.


Why Legal Separation Over Divorce?

A legal separation may be preferred over divorce due to various reasons including religious beliefs/values, financial incentives, for the benefit of dependents, or legal obligations. All that said, legal separation offers most of the same benefits as divorce, making this the perfect option for couples who must “stay together” for specific needs.



One of the main advantages of legal separation is that you no longer have to deal with an individual you have fallen out of love with, which can bring about great stress that affects the whole family. Other advantages include:

  • Financial Incentives - Both pirates keep their medical, life, and other insurance benefits. Tac benefits may also still be used.

  • Cultural Obligations - As mentioned, many religions and cultures forbid divorce, making legal separation the best option, as the couple will remain legally married.

  • An Opportunity To Make Amends - Love can be complicated and unlike a divorce, legal separation offers couples the opportunity to get back together down the line.
