As an experienced Divorce Lawyer, occasionally prospective clients will ask about the possibility of obtaining a separation instead of a divorce. In certain situations separations may be preferable. For example if there is a possibility that the parties may ultimately reconcile or if it would be beneficial to resolve the case by way of one party remaining on the other party's health insurance benefits. The parties are entitled to remain on each other's health insurance benefits so long as they remain married. So therefore separation may actually resolve all of the financial and other issues between the parties but they remain legally married and the party without the insurance coverage is entitled to remain on his her spouse's insurance.
