What is a Legal Separation?
- Legal separation is a specific status similar to divorce, for couples who don’t plan to resume their marital relationship but aren’t ready to dissolve their marriage. The only difference between legal separation and divorce is that legally separated parties aren’t free to remarry. A Tampa family law attorney can explain how Florida treats legal separation and help you determine if it might be a reasonable alternative to divorce.
