Marriage Separation / Legal Separation
In a legal separation, a court determines the husband and wife's rights and responsibilities that emerged from marriage.
A decree of legal separation does not terminate the marital status of the parties but is granted when the court finds that one or both parties need a legal separation.
A legal separation can be just as complicated, if not more complicated, than a dissolution (divorce); the parties want to separate and determine their rights and responsibilities, but not to terminate the marriage. A "successful" separation often depends on how well the parties are able to allocate property, determine the custody of children, and anything else needed to move forward with their lives.
