Judicial Separation

Judicial separation proceedings are used as an alternative to divorce where the parties to the marriage are separated. Judicial separation does not dissolve the marriage but simply records the fact of separation. These proceedings are often used when there is a religious objection to divorce. Most importantly, judicial separation proceedings allow either party to make an application for the same financial orders as are available to divorcing couples.

The legal costs of undefended judicial separation are the same as those for divorce proceedings.
