Information required the date of registration of the marriage, the number of years of marriage, details on how the marriage broke down, number of children, total assets.
The points listed above are non-exhaustive. Contact our lawyers for more advice.
2)How long does it take to complete a divorce?
This depends on the nature of divorce. A non-contested divorce can be completed within 4 to 5 months. On the other hand, a contested and acrimonious divorce may last more than a year.
3) What is the difference between a divorce and annulment?
An annulment of marriage is a legal decree that a marriage is null and void. Annulments are granted when a court makes a finding a marriage is invalid. While a divorce ends a legally valid marriage, an annulment treats the marriage as if it never existed.
