Understanding The Legal Separation Process
Legal separation offers married couples a means of clearly and concisely laying out each spouse’s rights and responsibilities as they move into more separate lives. The same questions that are answered during a divorce proceeding are answered in a legal separation, however, the marriage remains legally intact. A legally separated couple can pursue a divorce at a later time if they so choose.
Major issues such as the following can be answered by filing for a legal separation:
A legal separation is advantageous for those who wish to remain married for:
- Religious reasons
- To maintain insurance coverage for a spouse
- Tax issues
Given the importance of the decisions that are made during the legal separation process, it is essential that you have qualified legal representation that is able to help you understand and navigate the process.
