What Is The Main Benefit of Being Legally Separated Rather Than Divorced?


  • The only difference between a divorce and a legal separation is that parties that are legally separated cannot get remarried.
  • Most people get legally separated if they want to be able to continue on their spouse’s health insurance and it doesn’t matter to them that they can’t get remarried.
  • You can always turn a legal separation into a divorce at any time.
  • There is no waiting period in order to become legally separated.
