Do I Need To Go To Court To File An Application For Divorce? – Podcast Episode 53

 

This week on the Divorce Collective Podcast, Caralee answers the frequent question: Do I need to go to court to apply for divorce?

It is important to remember that the divorce itself is administration and does not help you with property division or parenting arrangements. In addition, there are many more essential components to separating amicably and moving forward with your life other than filing for divorce.

You do not need to file for divorce to sort out your property and parenting arrangements, this can be done as soon as practical after separation. Whereas to file for divorce you have to be separated for a minimum of 12-months.

You do not necessarily have to go to court when filing for divorce. However, this does depend on your circumstances! There are two ways to file for divorce: joint or sole applications.

To find out which application may best suit you and your circumstance, please listen to the full podcast or book a consultation with us!
