Litigating a divorce may take up to a year or longer depending on the circumstances. Normally, the court issues an order for the litigants to maintain the status quo while the case pends. The court may issue temporary orders to address temporary payment of expenses, allocation of parental rights, and support while the divorce is in litigation. Divorce is the only option to terminate the marriage relationship when both spouses cannot fully agree on settlement or when spouses refuse to fully disclose information pertaining to finances and property to the other spouse.[/expander_maker]


Dissolution is a method to terminate the marriage relationship between spouses who have disclosed all property and financial information to the other in addition to having an a full settlement. Spouses must agree on all property division, allocation of
[expander_maker id=”1″ more=”Read more” less=”Read less”] parental rights and responsibilities, and support obligations before pleadings are filed in court. Negotiation takes place before entering into court, often with the assistance of attorneys. The attorney prepares a separation agreement that reduces to writing the settlement. The separation agreement is filed with the court after it is property executed by all parties and their attorneys. The court conducts a brief hearing to approve the settlement agreement and dissolve the marriage relationship between thirty to ninety days after the dissolution is filed in court.

Legal Seperation

Legal separation is a process where spouses agree to divide their property, allocate parental rights and responsibilities, and address support so that they may live separate and apart from each other without interreference from the other spouse. The marriage relationship is not terminated in a legal separation.
[expander_maker id=”1″ more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]Spouses often choose to pursue a legal separation instead of a dissolution for insurance or religious reasons. The process of obtaining a legal separation may be similar to a dissolution. The main difference is that the parties are still married. It is important to consult with both an attorney and insurance providers regarding the ramifications of a legal separation before pursuing the same to ensure the protection of the spouse’s legal and interests.[/expander_maker]
