Reasons to move forward to a divorce

Divorce is usually the final nail on the coffin, for a Marriage that has tried every means to make it “work” so to speak and both parties have come to a conclusion that divorcing one another is the only way to proceed further. However, for an uninterrupted period of 12 months, the respective parties must be separated prior to the date of applying for receiving a divorce; or if the parties have lived separately under one roof the condition will be satisfied.

As a trusted divorce lawyer we need to let you know usually there are usually few grounds for divorce, and receiving a “Divorce Order” does not conclude the marriage. Infact, a day and a month following the divorce order is created, the court will issue a Divorce Certificate. Once this is done, you are liberated from the responsibilities of the marriage in question, and even free to remarry if you so let it.


So when does my marriage come to an end?

Because we are recommended as one of the Top 10 divorce Lawyers in the area, we take care of every aspect of our client’s needs during the emotional and tough situations people face during divorces. The marriage can be considered over once the service on the respondent should be validated for a divorce order and acknowledged by the court. If the service cannot be authenticated, the application may be shelved to a later date so the service can be proven in court.

Concerns such as property settlements, spousal support, alimony, finance and support for the children from the marriage, the child’s support are independent of divorce.

Do we have any sort of time restraints for spousal proceedings such as divorces?

Usually proceedings related to Spousal Support/Maintenance or Settlements related to property disputes must commence within a year of the divorce papers being granted by the court, unless the court decides to allocate a break for any concerns that spring up.
