A: The fact of the petition for legal separation being filed is a public record, and your names would show up in the court records, but access to the documents is restricted. If the parties cannot agree on who will remain in the home, then the court can decide that. If the parties cannot agree, then a divorce might be a better solution. Use the Find a Lawyer tab and consult a local family law attorney to discuss these issues.
