Why Do Couples Want A Legal Separation?
There are a variety of life circumstances where two people want to live separately, but do not wish to end their marriage. For example, religious beliefs may cause them to keep the matrimonial union intact. Or, for practical reasons, one spouse needs to continue receiving employee medical insurance coverage for the other spouse.
How Do I Get A Legal Separation?
A legal separation can be obtained by filing an action that alleges one or more grounds. A majority of these grounds are similar to those used to obtain a divorce, such as adultery, incompatibility, willful absence for over a year, gross neglect of duty, extreme cruelty, or habitual drunkenness.
In addition, all of the temporary orders and procedures in a divorce case also apply for a legal separation case.
