United StatesNO. A divorce is the legal dissolution of a marriage. Once the divorce decree becomes final the parties have no personal legal claims on each other as to their marriage except those made a part of the decree. (Child support issues and modifications of the decree can be ongoing.)If the parties filed for a legal separation prior to the divorce it would be nullified once the divorce decree was entered. After the parties have divorced it would be impossible to obtain a legal separation since your legal relationship has been dissolved.
