What is a Legal Separation in California?couple getting legally separated in California

Under California law, legal separation can be a valuable tool to change your marital or domestic partnership status without seeking a divorce. While divorce, domestic partnership dissolution, and annulment end or invalidate your status as a married person, a judgment of legal separation does not do so.

Legal separation is often utilized as a step toward permanently ending a relationship, as many people find it less emotionally difficult than divorce. It can also be used as a means of maintaining certain beneficial aspects of marriage or partnership while allowing parties to live separately.

Common reasons for seeking legal separation include:

  • Legal protections for those who do not want to get divorced for religious, financial, or family reasons, but who do not want to live with their spouse
  • The ability to take advantage of health insurance benefits that married couples and domestic partners enjoy
  • Separation of community assets and debts
