What is a Legal Separation and How Does It Differ from a Dissolution of Marriage?

A legal separation is also an order entered by a court. The legal procedure for obtaining a legal separation is the same as for a dissolution of the marriage. A decree of legal separation means that the parties live apart, but neither party can remarry.

The Decree of Legal Separation also divides the property and debts, provides for support (if appropriate), and ends the community for purposes of community property or debts.
