Health insurance is not the only reason why parties often file for legal separation. Quite often parties may wish to separate but recognize that there is a possibility of reconciliation. In such a circumstance one may not wish to end their marriage yet but also feels a need to be protected from the other party acting in an irresponsible manner. A legal separation protects someone in this situation. If, for example, you are legally separated and your spouse suddenly incurs a large amount of debt than that debt will belong solely to the spouse and will not be a community debt.
