Legal Separation

Legal Separation in Ohio

In Ohio, a legal separation is a process wherein a family law court can issue binding orders dividing a couple's marital property, order spousal support (alimony), allocate child custody, divide parenting time, and issue child support orders. All without terminating the couple's marriage. In some situations, it benefits a couple more to continue their marriage but live separately than it would to terminate their marriage through a divorce or dissolution. For some, the need to keep insurance coverage for medical expenses is of vital concern.
