The Dangers of Living in Separation Limbo

Often times, one of the first major steps on the path to getting divorced is making the choice to separate and live apart for a period of time. While some separations last a few weeks or a couple of months before being resolved one way or another, others seem to go on and on, with no end in sight. That’s what some people refer to as “separation limbo” and it’s a dangerous way to live.

What’s wrong with living in separation limbo?

  • It gives the other spouse the opportunity to hide assets without your knowledge, preventing you from getting what you deserve if a divorce finally comes.
  • Your spouse could be mismanaging your assets without you even knowing about it.
  • Any change in your spouse’s financial situation could have a significant impact on your future divorce settlement.
  • You both will be held back from moving on, delaying happiness and the opening of a new chapter in your lives.
