Some couples just may not be ready to get a divorce. Fortunately, these couples who aren’t ready for the permanent divorce are provided with the option of either entering into:
- Legal separation
- Trial separation.
Regardless of why you need to get a divorce, it is in the best interest of you and your spouse (and the sake of the marriage and children) to either go through trial separation or legal separation before ending the marriage altogether. This article will be discussing Trial Separation.
So what exactly is Trial Separation?
The term trial separation can be understood by the name itself. In a trial separation, couples typically split for a short-term period. Once there is a trial separation, couples would be able to take some time for themselves to assess their relationship. By doing so, they can determine if they would want to work on reconciliation, establish a more permanent separation, or even get a divorce.
When it comes to getting a divorce, overall, it might simply be done through negative emotions getting in the way of making rational decisions. For that reason, time apart from the marriage can really clear the mind of both spouses. This would help the couple decide on whether or not they really want to be separated.
Generally, once there is a trial separation in motion, one of the spouses’ moves out of their family home. They then move into a hotel, reside with a friend, or even rent out a place of their own to stay. If the couple decides that they can’t afford separate living environments, they may come to a decision on still living together, even though there is a trial separation in motion. In most cases, for a trial separation, couples don’t iron out all the details on the legal part of the separation. This means that there aren’t any legal agreements established about finances or custody. This is because the separation is supposed to be temporary. However, in some cases, there are times when trial separations begin to drag on. For that reason, it may be a better idea to put some of the terms of the separation into a legal document.
It is essential to keep in mind that a trial separation is an option that may not work for everyone. However, if both parties of the marriage are open to the option, giving it a try can sometimes help the marriage get back on track
