The Basics of Divorce Law

Last updated 5 years ago

Many people know what a divorce entails, but this video explains the process from a legal perspective. A divorce is a legal order granted by the court, which says that the marriage in question no longer exists. This proceeding starts with one of the spouses filing a petition for the disillusion of the marriage, and then working out the logistics with his or her partner.

While a judge grants the final divorce order, most divorces happen without a trial. Instead the partners hammer out a divorce agreement via their attorneys or through mediation.
