I'm in Washington state and LS here is just like a divorce agreement accept we are technically still married so that I can remain on his health insurance. Other than that, it's a divorce.
There is also a clause that allows the separation to be changed to divorce at any given time, where a divorce requires a 90 day wait period.
(All this information is my own.)
Oh yeah, you should be able to find the forms you need if you look at your state/county website for divorce/separation requirements. I have an attorney but I filled the forms out before I hired him, so that I would be informed.
