Legal Separation/Separate Support

Find out how to get support for yourself or your children during legal separation.

Massachusetts doesn’t have a procedure called “legal separation.” Separate support is a lawsuit to get support for yourself and your family. It can also keep your spouse from putting any limitations on your personal freedom. This is a separate process from divorce.
