Some Nevada couples may want to receive some of the benefits of divorce while retaining other benefits of marriage. For these couples, legal separation may be the answer. With legal separation, spouses can remain married while living away from one another and establishing legal agreements concerning property division, child custody and other matters.
The legal separation agreement will not be that different from a divorce agreement. It will detail some of the most important areas that need to be decided in a divorce so that if the spouses decide to finalize their divorce, it will be more of a formality than in-depth process.
