If you cannot legally divorce or do not want to divorce for personal or religious reasons, a Judicial Separation is an alternative form of legal separation.
Getting a Legal Separation
To get a judicial separation, you do not have to wait for one year after your marriage. Nor do you have to prove that your marriage has permanently broken down.
If you obtain a Judicial Separation, you and your ex-spouse can live apart. Like the divorce, the Court can divide the marital assets (i.e. savings and property). You can choose how to make arrangements for looking after your children.
