Legal separation is a process very similar to divorce, with the only difference being that the marital status between a couple remains the same. Child support and spousal support are determined. Child custody arrangements are settled and community property is divided.
A legal separation may provide great benefit when one spouse is engaged in activity that would jeopardize finances and possessions. A gambling problem or other addictions could quickly deplete a family’s assets. A legal separation may provide the protection one spouse needs.
