There are occasions when a couple is unsure as to whether it is better for them to separate or file for a divorce. This decision will depend on your own personal circumstances, but here is some further information to help you reach that decision.
First, you should be clear on the difference between separation and divorce – which means first learning about the different kinds of separation there are. These are as follows:
As you can see, the main difference between divorce and separation is that the marriage is only legally dissolved during a divorce. Separations are typically used by couples who do not wish to go through the formal divorce process – usually due to their beliefs or principles. However, save for informal separations, you will have to take legal measures to finalise the separation, so if you’re not opposed to divorce outright, it might be worth seeking the divorce route instead. To make a fully informed decision, talk to an experienced divorce solicitor to find out what would be best in your situation.
