Filing for Divorce vs. Separation Agreement
What is a Separation Agreement?
A separation agreement is a legally binding agreement signed between the two spouses which contains all the decisions that were made. The contract sets out each party’s issues and rights with regards to child and spousal support, custody, and access, property and debts.
What does it mean to file for Divorce?
Once you have entered into a separation agreement that captures all the terms of your settlement then you can file for divorce (assuming you meet the time requirement). The divorce judgement terms will reflect the same terms in your agreement.
What is the difference between a Contested Divorce and an Uncontested Divorce?
Contested Divorce Costs in India
After the Separation Agreement has been signed or if the issues are straightforward, not requiring an agreement, and both parties agree that they want a divorce, then it is regarded as uncontested (Desk Divorce). In this case, the parties file together. The provincial governments set out the rules for the Family Court processes. This joint divorce is much less expensive and time-consuming than a contested divorce and can either be done by way of “Do-it-yourself kits” or by hiring a paralegal or one lawyer to do the filing. In order to qualify for an uncontested divorce, there must be no outstanding unresolved issues with regards to the children. These divorces need only one application and therefore can use the same lawyer, paralegal or another service to file.Loading...
