Annulment, Divorce, and Legal Separation

divorce

We often get the question “what is the difference between an annulment, a divorce, and a legal separation?” The ending of a marriage or partnership may be emotionally charged, and arguments may replace reason. During these times, an attorney experienced in the state with jurisdiction over your case may be required to help provide direction and insight to help resolve the conflict.

 

Divorce is a legal dissolution of a marriage or domestic partnership and declares the husband and wife, or domestic partners to be single again. A divorce may mean involvement with your ex-spouse for years to come if children or finances are involved, but both parties are free to marry or enter into another domestic partnership again. This is one of the most commonly used methods of ending a marriage or domestic partnership.
