Getting a Divorce? Get The Right Info First

Getting divorced is never fun but you are not alone. You can take some comfort in the fact that marriages end every day. This may not be the most pleasant fact about marriage but it doesn’t make it any less true. But what is a divorce? Simply put, it is the legal term for ending your marriage. If you feel like your marriage has been over for a while, or you have both have gone your separate ways, without a divorce, you are still married. 

So why is it important to get a divorce if you are happily separated? If you are married, but not with the person you got married to, they are considered your next of kin. In the event of something happening to you, they are entitled to everything that you have, including your pension, any property you own, and end of life decisions. It doesn’t matter if your marriage only lasted six months before you went your separate ways and spent twenty years with someone else. Without the divorce, you are still legally married to the person you haven’t seen in twenty years. 

If you feel like your marriage has run its course, it might be time to think about getting a divorce. Thankfully, the process can be very simple. You will need a lawyer to walk you through the process and to make sure that the marriage is properly terminated. The last thing you need is to go through everything only to discover some paperwork wasn’t properly filed and you are still married.
