Understanding the Difference Between Divorce and Legal Separation
In Tennessee, married couples have the option to separate instead of filing for divorce. Separation is very similar to divorce in that spouses divide their assets and debts, establish child custody agreements and visitation for their children. The difference remains that the couple continues to be technically married. Neither party can remarry while separated.
Why Choose Separation?
Legal separation allows both parties to remain on each other's health insurance policies. This can also be beneficial for individuals seeking to remain the beneficiary of a life insurance policy. Otherwise, divorce and separation are very similar. However, it must be noted that all assets acquired by either party after the court grants a legal separation belong only to the person that acquired the asset. Your spouse will not have any claim to assets received by your post-legal separation and vise versa.
You will still need to deal with the same legal processes and fees. In the end, either spouse may use the separation agreement to complete the divorce after two (2) years of separation.
