Most people assume that when they separate, and engage in property settlement proceedings or parenting arrangements, that their divorce, ie the actual dissolution of their marriage, is part of the process, which is incorrect.
The actual dissolution of marriage is a separate administrative proceeding that is not defendant on whether you have completed or even started your property settlement or parenting arrangement negotiations.
You must be separated for a period of 12 months before being able to apply for a divorce, and other limitations may apply to you, depending on your circumstances.
