The Difference Between Divorce and Separation Agreement

While divorce marks the legal end of a marriage, a separation agreement outlines the terms for couples living apart. Unlike divorce, separation agreements allow couples to maintain certain legal benefits of marriage, while still living separately. Choosing a separation agreement over divorce can provide couples with time and space to evaluate their options before making the final decision to end the marriage.
