A legal separation means the husband and wife have a legal separation judgment. That judgment of legal separation means a court order. It allows a couple to live separately but remain married. During a period of legal separation, neither spouse may remarry or enter a domestic partnership. The procedure for legal separation in California is very similar to that of divorce. Where appropriate, a court will decide on issues such as custody of children and division of property.
