A legal separation is like divorce in process, but the end result is vastly different. At the end of a separation the parties remain married whereas at the end of a divorce the parties are single. If you aren’t sure which is best in your situation, please contact us for more information. Court orders are necessary to have a legal separation in most cases. Most states do not require a mandatory waiting period before the separation can be finalized. There are four main issues that must be worked out for the court to finalize the separation: property division, spousal support (previously called alimony), and (if there are minor children) custody/visitation and child support.
