Legal Separation in Minnesota

Attorney GLEN A. NORTON ...

Legal Separation ... Legal Separation. A legal separation is a court process wherein the marital assets are provisionally divided and the marital liabilities may be provisionally apportioned. A legal separation is not a divorce and is not obtained by simply living apart. Many of the elements of divorce are present in a legal separation; however, it is not necessary for the marriage relationship to be irretrievably broken.
