As an accomplished New Jersey Divorce Attorney, I am often asked by clients about legal separation and divorce. Divorce is an absolute separation of your marriage, a legal separation is not. A legal separation means that there’s some type of analysis and sometimes there’s lawyers involved. There’s going to be a document at that point where you’re going to look at the alimony, child support, retirement assets, custody, parenting.
You could put the legal separation document together, have it all signed, have it all notarized, and prepare it for the divorce. The basic difference between a legal separation and a divorce is an absolute you won’t be married anymore. In a legal separation, you’re still married.
