Legal separation may be the preferred option for many couples who are not prepared to divorce, or who no longer wish to maintain their relationship but want to remain legally married for religious or other reasons. A legal separation does require the couples to settle certain marital and financial obligations, such as child support, child custody, spousal support and property division. Once the legal separation is finalized, the parties no longer acquire community property, and are free from further spousal obligations toward one another, except those laid out in the legal separation agreement.
There are a number of reasons why a couple may choose to legally separate rather than file for divorce. Legal separations allow for resolution of the issue of the shared financial obligations during the term of the separation.
