A legal/judicial separation allows you to live apart, without divorcing or ending a civil partnership. You can apply for a judicial separation for the same reasons/grounds you could file for a divorce or end a civil partnership. However, you do not need to show that the marriage or civil partnership has broken down irretrievably.
You may want a legal separation if:
- You have religious reasons against divorce
- You’ve been married or in a civil partnership for less than a year
- You want time and space to work out if you want to end the marriage or civil partnership
