If there is a legal separation agreement that granted support then the obligated spouse must continue to obey the order or file a petition to have said order amended or revoked. If there is no legal separation agreement simply that the couple agreed on a mutual separation, the spouse is not obligated to render support of any sort until either a legal separation with division of property or a divorce is granted. Both parents are, however, legally obligated to support minor children whether or not a child support order is in affect.
