Facts About Legal Separation  

       Dissolution of the matrimonial bond with legal sanction is divorce. Legal separation is a precursor to divorce during which time the couple could rethink on the decision to end their marriage. 

       In a majority of cases, it is lack of proper communication or ego problems between couples that bring the marriage to an end and therefore, the couple could opt for some of the following legal options to give their marriage an opportunity to succeed:

       Trial Separation – Here the couples decide to live apart leading their own personal lives. This type of separation gives couples an opportunity to settle their differences and ponder over the possibility of continuing their marital bond.

       Living Apart – In this situation, the couple end up living in separate houses and depending on which state the couple resides in, the debt accumulated or the assets owned during the marriage are either personal or joint property.

       Permanent Separation – When the couple has reached a point of no return, all the assets and liabilities acquired during the marriage are personal property of either spouse except the expenditure incurred on maintenance of marital home and children which is joint responsibility.

       Legal Separation - It is pertinent to note that legal separation is not END of marriage as per law. The court will rule over issues like property division, maintenance, custody of children, visitation rights etc. When a couple separates legally, the spouse can still avail health insurance and some Social Security benefits. That is why many times, wives prefer legal separation to divorce. However, the only drawback is that a couple that is separated legally cannot remarry as bigamy is not allowed as per the prevailing the laws in the US.
