Separation can be really stressful for any family. When two people are married, divorce is just one of a long list of the things to be considered when thinking about the future.
It can really help to speak with a professional such as a counsellor or other support service about what you’re going through.
What needs to happen for me to get a divorce?
If there are children under the age of 18, you will also need to satisfy the Court that appropriate arrangements have been made for the children’s care.
A divorce simply means that you and your spouse are no longer legally married. It’s important to understand that divorce doesn’t finalise the property or parenting matters between you.
In fact, divorce is often one of the last steps for a separated couple to consider, after the parenting and property matters have finally been resolved.
