Legal separation is a court order that mandates the rights and duties of a couple while they are still married but living apart from one another. Legal separation is not as common as divorce but it can be a great way to help couples who are not decided on divorce to work through issues that affect their marriage including financials and children.

2. Legal Divorce Papers

Legal divorce papers usually mean the permanent dissolution of a marriage. The legal divorce papers will legally end a marriage and unlike an annulment, legal divorce papers treat a marriage like it never happened. This means that the couple involved in the divorce have to divide up their assets including property and even responsibilities that include child care.

3. Legal Guardianship Papers

In order for someone to become a child's legal guardian, they must file legal guardianship papers with the court and must appear at the guardianship hearing. These legal guardianship papers give the holder the right to care for a child including provide all of the child's needs.
