Divorce, Legal Separation or Annulment?

In the state of California, a married couple may enter into separation agreements that defined their property and custody rights without a divorce.  A Judgment of Legal Separation is sometimes preferred to divorce for a number of reasons, usually involving religious practice or availability of dependent benefits.  In the absence of a default, both parties must agree to a legal separation instead of the divorce.
