Separation and Divorce: How to obtain a divorce

Divorces as a formal and final end to a marriage. To obtain a divorce, you must have been separated for at least 12 months. You and your ex-spouse may have lived in the same home for a part of or all of the 12 month separation period, but extra documentation or information may be required if this was the case.

Although you cannot file for divorce before the 12 month separation period has ended, you may begin negotiations for assets, property and arrangements for the care of children before then. Individuals often resolve matters regarding child custody and division of assets and property before the final divorce is obtained. Obtaining a divorce will end the marriage legally, but it will not resolve issues regarding children or assets and property.
