Legal Separations

Legal Separations

These types of cases are rare and are only sought by a client when it is more beneficial for both parties to stay legally married, but living apart.  Legal separations involved the exact same issues as a divorce except that neither party can remarry until their legal separation is converted to a divorce for good cause.  The grounds for a legal separation are the same as for a divorce, thus with the advent of the ground of irreconcilable differences which have caused the irremediable breakdown of the marriage (known as “no fault” divorce) and where a divorce trumps a legal separation, legal separation can only be accomplished if both parties agree.
