  • Separation does not dissolve a marriage, but divides the parties financially from each other and settles the issues of child custody, parenting time, spousal maintenance, division of property and all financial issues relevant to a divorce, but at the end of the day you are still legally married.
  • By entering into a separation agreement opposed to a divorce, parties can remain on the other spouse’s health insurance, which today, some people are under a great hardship to pay health insurance premiums.
  • For a period of time and really without any legal limitation, people can remain married but separated and continue to stay on the other spouse’s health insurance policy, which can be a very big help financially.
