Thank you for the information: We went to court and obtained a Legal Seperation. We are living apart also. Our finances are separate. The only thing we have been doing together is taxes. My spouse is now sick, could I be held legally responsible for the medical bills. We have had this legal Seperation at least a couple of years now. Thank you. Response 1: No, you are not responsible for her medical bills if you did not sign any papers with her health care providers as the Responsible Party. Your initial post: How long is a Legal Seperation good for. Is there a time limit? Can it expire? Thank you for our help. Response 2: Legal Separation does not have an expiration date. It stays in full force and effect until the parties withdraw it from the Court or file for divorce.
