Separation and Divorce

A separation often occurs when one spouse stops residing with the other, but there are situations where a couple can be living separate and apart under the same roof, or living apart but not separated.  It depends on the circumstances.

A Divorce can typically be granted after one year of parties residing separate and apart.  The other party does not have to sign off on a Divorce as shown in American movies, but they are to be hand-delivered the Divorce Application, if possible.

Any of the lawyers can help with obtaining a simple Divorce, but if there are minor children of the married couple, then a court order or Separation Agreement stating decision making and child support are necessary before a court will grant a Divorce.
