Marriage can be tough. A legal separation in Tennessee allows struggling married couples to live apart from one another for a limited or indefinite amount of time.

With the exception of dissolution of marriage, the court can rule on all the issues usually brought up in a divorce.
A legal separation decree can include provisions for:
Legal separations are designed to give spouses some time to discuss ending their marriage so that they can avoid hasty or regrettable decisions.
