Legal separation is a process that will allow a couple to become recognized by the Courts as separated, but still keep their marital status intact – often so that health benefits can be continued or for religious reasons.
Although the State of Florida does not recognize legal separations, there is an alternative, known as Support Unconnected with Dissolution of Marriage. This allows couples who plan to separate and live apart to file preset terms that can be approved and enforced by the court. Although Florida does not offer a technical “legal separation,” you can achieve the same results using this method. This will allow you to set up terms such as child support; parenting plan; timesharing; spousal support; and other terms while still remaining legally married.
