Why Legal Separation Instead of Divorce?
Choosing between divorce and legal separation can be confusing. Hurtik Law & Associates is here to help you make the right decision for you and your family. It is important to understand how legal separation and divorce are the same and how they are different.
Some of the similarities include:
- You and your spouse will live separately
- Your marital assets will be divided between you
- Child custody and child support arrangements will be made
- One spouse may need to make alimony payments to the other
The primary difference between divorce and legal separation is that divorce fully dissolves a marriage. During a legal separation, the spouses remain married. Why might you want to consider this option?
There are several benefits of a legal separation. For instance, you can:
- Spend time apart to think through the implications of ending your marriage
- Maintain eligibility for health insurance benefits
- Retain certain medical benefits
- Hold to your personal or religious convictions about divorce
- Maintain your immigration status
- Continue to enjoy certain tax benefits
