Simply put, a legal separation is when a couple that are legally married agree to separate. In most cases, this arrangement is put in place temporarily as a measure to keep the couple apart until the divorce has been finalized. Of course, if there are children involved, they will be a part of the legal separation, and it must be dictated where they will live until the end of divorce proceedings. With that being said, a legal separation is not necessarily tantamount to divorce. Reconciliation may occur over the course of the legal separation, in which case no more legal action is required. If a divorce is being filed for, however, it must be done apart from their legal separation arrangement. If you want to get a legal separation, or are interested in knowing the precise differences between this action and divorce, you should contact one of our divorce lawyers in Phoenix.
