Understanding Legal Separation
Legal separation is a process in which a married couple agrees to separate their lives, but continues to live in the same residence. This process is meant to allow the couple to work out the details of their separation while protecting the legal rights of the spouse who is not leaving.
For example, the couple may decide that the person who is leaving the residence will take the pet with them. Or, the person who is leaving may get to keep the family car while the other one gets the credit card and other accounts.
There are many reasons why a couple may decide to separate. Some of these include:
- Domestic violence
- Lack of communication
- Drug and alcohol abuse
- Mental illness
While the couple may decide to live in the same residence, it is important to realize that this is not a divorce. The couple is still legally married, and will have to go through a divorce to legally end their marriage.
