FAQs

Judicial Separation is a legal process that allows married couples to formalise their separation without actually getting divorced. It involves obtaining a court order known as a decree of judicial separation, which legally recognises the separation of the couple’s financial and legal affairs. 

While both processes provide legal recognition of a couple’s separation, Judicial Separation does not dissolve the marriage. You remain legally married but live apart, with court orders possibly outlining arrangements for finances, children, and property. 

People opt for Judicial Separation for many reasons, such as not being ready for divorce, religious beliefs, or to retain certain marital benefits while living separately. 

It allows you to make formal arrangements for finances and children, similar to divorce, but without ending the marriage. This can include decisions on property, debts, and child custody. 

Yes, part of the process can involve legally dividing property and assets, ensuring both parties reach a fair agreement. 

Judicial Separation can impact these areas, so it is crucial to get professional advice. Unlike divorce, you might still have rights to certain benefits from your spouse.
