A legal separation is a legal framework often used by married couples who wish to remain married but separate themselves from the marital relationship. A legal separation allows a married couple to determine issues involving child custody, child support, visitation, property division, alimony and other marital issues without formally dissolving their marriage. A legal separation does not terminate the marriage, but rather allows the court to determine the rights and responsibilities of a husband and wife arising out of a marital relationship.
