Separation Agreement vs. Divorce vs. Judgement of Divorce from Bed & Board
In many ways, a separation agreement is much like a divorce. A separation agreement requires couples to arrive at an agreement on many of the same issues that arise during a divorce. There is also a Judgement of Divorce from Bed and Board in the State of New Jersey. Couples are able to obtain a Judgement of Divorce from Bed and Board in the same way they can obtain a divorce, except both parties must agree to it. Neither party can remarry until it becomes an absolute divorce.
Both divorce and separation agreement address:
Though there are some similarities, there is one significant difference: A separation agreement does not officially terminate a marriage. Though the couple has decided to live apart, they remain married.
A couple may choose a separation agreement because:
- It gives them time to address their differences
- It allows them to test the waters of living apart
- It provides a better financial option than divorce
- It allows both parties to remain on the same insurance plan
- It satisfies divorce prerequisites in case the couple decides to divorce
- It allows them to maintain their convictions against divorce
- It is easily reversed so couples can resume living together right away
