Understanding judicial separation agreements and annulment

Another option instead of divorce is Judicial Separation, which means that you will be legally separated. However, you will still be married. This option is generally only chosen by those who have been married for less than a year, or for those who cannot divorce due to their religious beliefs. With Judicial Separation, the grounds for separation are the same as divorce; however you will not need to prove that your marriage has irretrievably broken down.

Our solicitors here at TDP will be able to advise you on the Judicial Separation procedure, as well as offer assistance when it comes to determining the grounds for separation. Once a ground for separation has been decided upon, a member of our team will be able to assist you in moving forward.

Annulment is another alternative to divorce, but is only available in rare circumstances (for example if the marriage is void).   Our solicitors here at TDP can advise you in respect of the grounds for Annulment and can guide and advise you through the process.

Much like divorce, Judicial Separation and Annulment can involve other areas of family law, such as matters concerning finance and children. Our team can advise you on all of these areas.
