Divorce is only available for legally married spouses who wish to end their relationship and/or remarry. It is the process through which they terminate their legal marriage by an application to the court. Married couples are not divorced until a court grants one. Courts will only do so if the marriage has broken down due to separation, adultery, or cruelty. Generally, unless adultery or cruelty is at issue, divorce via separation requires at least a year long wait before an application can be made. Additionally, if there are children involved, the court can stall the divorce process until it is satisfied that proper arrangements have been made for the children’s care, custody, and support.
