You and your spouse have determined that you need to be apart from each other. Should you get a divorce or a legal separation? There are numerous details that factor into it, but the primary difference between legal separation and divorce is that you cannot get remarried when you’re legally separated.
Divorce and legal separation are very similar. Both parties live independently and must agree on alimony, child support, property division, and other factors. However, if you or your ex find a new romantic partner and eventually decide to get married, you’ll need to officially end your marriage through a divorce.
Whether you and your spouse want a divorce or a legal separation, you’ll need to work with a family law attorney. An experienced attorney will give you legal advice during a potentially difficult and stressful time while managing your specific legal issues.
