If my husband and I got a legal separation, could we still live in the same house and lead different lives? Or could we buy a duplex and each lives on a side and yet have the legal separation be affective? Could we have joint custody of the kids in doing so?
The answer to all your questions is yes! However, you must carefully address each of these issues in your Separation Agreement, which should be drafted by an experienced matrimonial attorney-mediator.
