The Legal separation process in CT is the same as the Connecticut Divorce process. At the end of the process the couple have separate lives, yet remain legally married. Neither party may re-marry until they are divorced.
There are reasons to use legal separation, and not take the final step to dissolve your marriage.
Uncertainty that divorce is truly what is desired, but want to try a period of physical separation, as well as financial separation, not being responsible for the other spouses financial actions.
Religious beliefs, and the desire to follow these beliefs, as closely as possible.
Keep a spouse on an insurance plan while living separate lives.
After a couple has completed the legal separation process, either spouse can petition the court to dissolve their marriage at any point in the future without going through the entire divorce process again. At that point the legal separation agreement becomes the divorce agreement and part of the divorce decree.
