Legal Separation vs. Divorce
There are many reasons why couples choose legal separation over divorce.
Most commonly, it is to either protect certain benefits of marriage, or
to avoid divorce on religious or moral grounds. The primary difference
between the two is that in a divorce, the marriage will end completely.
In a legal separation, the couples will still be considered married from
a legal standpoint.
Other differences between separation and divorce include:
- Separated parties cannot remarry
- Separated parties maintain inheritance rights
- Separated parties can receive military benefits
- Separated parties may join spouse’s health care plan
