What is a ‘divorce’?

A divorce, sometimes called a decree of “dissolution of marriage”, is a court order terminating a marriage. It no longer exists. Unlike an annulment, which states that the marriage never existed, a divorce is the termination of a valid marriage.

Typically in the divorce the parties and/or court resolve all issues between them, such as division of property, child custody and visitation, and spousal and child support.
