Divorce, also referred to as dissolution, is one solution to the breakdown of a marriage. Most people use the word separation interchangeably with divorce. Legally, however, they mean two different things. Couples who separate remain married pending any further action, while those who divorce are officially no longer married. How the couple’s assets and debts are divided during a period of separation varies by state and the type of separation that occurs.
