What You Should Know about Legal Separation Versus Divorce in Connecticut

My spouse and I are not getting along. We have three young children and the constant fighting is wearing us out. We were thinking of living apart of awhile, but then we learned we should become legally separated instead. What’s wrong with just living apart?

While it’s true you can quietly live apart, if your marriage is in trouble, it’s best to find a way to protect your interests—and those of your children’s—before you start living separate lives. That’s why you should consider a legal separation, especially if you live in Connecticut.
