Legal Seperation

Legal separation is distinguished from a dissolution of marriage in that the marriage is not dissolved between the parties, maintaining the parties’ status as being married and also allowing some spouses to maintain health insurance coverage through the spouse they are legal separated from (depending on their employer). As with a dissolution of marriage, the courts are able to establish legal decision-making and parenting time for any minor children, as well as establish orders for child support and spousal maintenance, while dividing assets and debts accrued during the marriage.
