What is a divorce?

Divorce is the legal term for the process where two people end their marriage or marital union permanently. Sometimes there are problems in a marriage that can’t be fixed and a divorce is the only solution. While divorce is becoming more commonplace, it doesn’t make it any easier for the people involved. By getting a divorce you will become legally single again and can remarry should you want to.

Key steps of divorce

The process for divorce is outlined by these key steps:

  • Agreeing on the reason for your divorce
  • Submitting your application for divorce
  • Agreeing arrangements for any assets/possessions
  • Decree Nisi granted
  • Agree financial arrangements
  • Decree Absolute granted
