Pursuing a Legal Separation
The decision to separate can be one of the most emotionally complex and difficult decisions you will ever have to make. However, once the decision has been made, you and your partner will need to decide exactly how you will want to formally represent that separation. For couples who do not wish to legally dissolve their marriage, it is possible to become legally separated from your partner instead.
Advantages of a Legal Separation
The terms of a legal separation are typically more flexible than those associated with other, more final forms of disunion. With that in mind, couples who do pursue legal separation over a litigated divorce typically find the following to be true:
- Less emotional stress is associated with a legal separatio
- Both individuals have more control over the outcome
- There is potential for an easier reconciliation of their marriage
