After a marital separation, one of the considerations is whether to obtain a divorce. A divorce will end the marriage. This process commences with an application for divorce.
What are reasons for divorce?
Many separated people will choose not to divorce after they separate. It isn’t legally necessary to divorce unless one of the spouses intends to re-marry. There are strategic legal reasons to divorce, including for the purposes of estate planning, property settlement matters, and to send a clear message that the relationship is over – for example where there is ongoing domestic violence involved.
Our team understand that the personal choice to divorce can be a difficult one. We place emphasis on supporting clients to understand the legal ramifications of a divorce, and understand that the decision of whether to divorce is yours, and yours only to make.
