When a married couple separate and decide that they will not get back together, they will need to make arrangements to divide their property. To do so, they must calculate the value of all the property they possess and the amount of debt that they have incurred.
There are presumptions at law concerning the establishment of parentage of children, and it is important to know where you stand when acknowledging parentage of a child, and the implications of doing so.
Divorces can be obtained by either the husband or the wife after the couple have been living separate and apart for one year. This does not necessarily mean that the couple have to have been living in separate places. It is possible to be living separate and apart in the same house if you no longer share your life with the other person.
