Judicial Separation

Judicial Separation

At Watson Woodhouse we have a team of experienced solicitors who will guide you through the process of Judicial Separation. If you’re certain your marriage has come to an end and you don’t wish to divorce, Judicial Separation is a viable option. In this instance you’ll be separated without the marriage being legally terminated. If this option is for you, please get in touch with us today at Watson Woodhouse.

Judicial Separation Solicitors

Your Judicial Separation Solicitor professionally guides you through the process. Similarly to divorce, judicial separation involves the same financial arrangements (with some minor exceptions) whilst removing a couple’s obligation to live together.

Many religions do not accept divorce making this judicial separation a better option for some. This method does not have the same stigma as divorce and can therefore be the preferred option in certain circumstances.

Judicial Separation & Divorce Differences

A decree for judicial separation can be applied for during the first year of marriage. Alternatively, couples have to wait until a year has passed to apply for divorce. Unlike divorce, you don’t have to prove a marriage has irretrievably broken down for a judicial separation. The latter means you’re still legally married and are unable to remarry. You will lose out on some of your legal rights attached to marriage with judicial separation.

If you require a solicitor for any aspects of separation, divorce and family law, please speak with us today.
