Also called the “dissolution of marriage,” divorce is a legal process in which a judge or any other person of authority terminates a marriage. The successful completion of this process restores both partners back to the single status and permits them to re-marry other individuals, if they want.
Divorce laws vary from state to state and divorce proceedings include matters of spousal support, child custody, child support, distribution of property and division of debt as well. Engaging in a divorce proceeding can lead to a myriad of charged emotions, broken trust, and other issues. That is why it is very important that you don’t start the divorce process until you are absolutely sure that you want to end your marriage. Learn all this and much more on how to divorce your partner and end your marriage.
