Divorce and separation can be one of the most distressing experiences of someone’s life.
A divorce and separation can often be misinterpreted as meaning the same thing; however, they do differ. So, the difference is, divorce ends a marriage however a separation does not. There are certain requirements that a person must meet to get a divorce whereas separation does not hold these precise requirements.
Our divorce and separation solicitors’ main aim is to make the process run as smoothly as possible in order to protect your financial and personal interests and wellbeing.
