If you are pondering divorce, but have not yet committed to filing, then you may want to consider a trial separation. A trial separation is an informal arrangement where you and your spouse separate to see what life is like without each other. If you and your spouse recently got into a fight, then it may be smart to enter a trial separation to see if you can resolve things after a period of time. If you believe that the marriage is irretrievably broken at the end of the trial separation, then you can move forward with your divorce with full confidence that you are doing the right thing.
A trial separation does not typically include a written agreement. While individuals can file for a legal separation, trial separations normally don't get the courts involved.
