A very practical alternative to divorce.
Dealing with the end of a relationship is not easy; there are many emotions, thoughts, and decisions to make. The most frequently debated question is whether to seek a divorce or legal separation from your spouse.
California family law creates two options: dissolution of marriage or legal separation. The difference between a divorce and legal separation is that a divorce terminates the marital relationship, i.e. once a judgment is entered you are no longer married and are free to remarry. A legal separation is a legal vehicle to determine and divide the spouses' community property and separate property, therefore the marital relationship remains legally intact despite the spouses being physically separated.
