|A legal separation is a process that some couples may opt for instead of ending their marriage, and this could be for various reasons due to financial, religious,
etc. A legal separation means you are separating from your spouse, living apart, but still married. Couples seeking this, must live separate and apart, and one of
them must be an IL resident for at least 90 days.
If you do not think you can live with your spouse, you can file for a legal separation, and filing for a legal separation doesn't prevent you or your spouse from
getting a divorce later.
