No, generally both parties will need to request the dissolution of marriage petition be withdrawn or dismissed, and then need to file a petition of separation. Not every state will grant a legal separation decree, nor dismiss a divorce petition depending upon the circumstances.
Legal separation is to the same thing as divorce and is not always a prerequisite to a obtaining a dissolution of marriage (i.e. divorce). Although many of the issues (such as alimony, child support, etc) that would traditionally be dealt with in a divorce were done in your legal separation, you still need to go through the divorce process, starting with filing for divorce. At no point, no matter how long you have been separated, will a legal separation turn into a divorce.
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.

A divorce ends the marriage legally and the parties have no further legal claims against each other.With a legal separation the couple remains legally married.

Although a legal separation is often the first step couples take before getting a divorce, it never turn into a divorce (say after a certain amount of time) because they are different legal status' and require different court proceedings/paper work, etc. Also, Legal separation is not the same thing as divorce and is not always a prerequisite to a obtaining a dissolution of marriage (i.e. divorce).
Not exactly. Separation is a requirement to get a divorce granted by the court, but that separation itself has no special legal status. The couple are still married in the eyes of the law until the "absolute divorce" is finalized. The separation itself does have requirements that must be met for the divorce to be granted, which are that they must live in separate residences, and they must not have any sexual contact with each other during that time.
There are a number of places online which offer free legal forms for separation. However, if a person is wanting to divorce their spouse, then it is best they file divorce papers. Divorce papers are the only legal forms which formally dissolve a marriage. Free legal separation papers may be found at the California Courts website (these are only good in California), Law Depot, Rocket Lawyer, and Legal Contracts.
Legal separation can last forever, it is basically the last option before divorce. It is issued by a court order and either one of the spouses can change their mind and remove the legal separtion or continue with divorce. Legal separation is basicaly the last alternative before divorce, It gives spouses a chance to solve marital problems, take advanctage of medical benefits that they may not have if they were divorced, if religious beliefs conflict with divorce you are able to live separately and retain your marital status, etc....
