Some married couples prefer not to divorce but merely obtain a legal separation. This may be due to social, religious or age related reasons.
In these circumstances, although you will remain married, it is possible to obtain an interim or final settlement on finances and property through a formal agreement.
In modern times, some marriages end in divorce. There is nothing odd or unusual about it. Yet, the thought of ending a marriage and its financial and social implications can be overwhelming. Divorce law is complex and ever-changing to suit the needs of a rapidly changing society.
It is expected that the new no-fault divorce procedure which commenced in April 2022 will help to make the process simpler and smoother for the parties.
If you and your spouse have reached the difficult decision that you wish to end your relationship as a married couple, the procedure can be relatively straightforward.
Sometimes, if one party does not want a divorce and the other does, this can lead to complications, delays and difficulties with progressing the divorce to a conclusion.
Do seek advice if you have any concerns about your divorce becoming defended. It may still be possible to negotiate and reach a position acceptable to both parties to enable the divorce to proceed without a contested court case.
