      Legal separation is a specific status similar to divorce, for couples who don’t plan to resume their marital relationship but aren’t ready to dissolve their marriage. The only difference between legal separation and divorce is that legally separated parties aren’t free to remarry. A family law attorney in your area can explain how your state treats legal separation and help you determine if it might be a reasonable alternative to divorce.
