What is legal separation?

Legal separation is a court process that provides for a couple to live apart and carry on with their separate lives, even though they remain married. It may be a suitable alternative to a divorce when the parties are opposed to divorce for religious beliefs, financial or insurance reasons; or simply want to separate before deciding whether to pursue a divorce, but also establish financial boundaries and responsibilities; such as separation of assets, custody of children and/or child support.
