Almost always, parents will agree on decisions regarding children, without the need to go to court. However, if there is a significant disagreement, we will provide you with appropriate advice and negotiations on how to proceed. This will reach a settlement with your ex, or, when that is not possible, the court will ultimately reach a decision. The court will keep the best interest of the children in mind and decide which parent the children should live with.

What counts as separation for divorce?

This usually means that the couple is living apart from each other. It can be initiated by either party or be a mutual decision. To prove that your marriage is really over, the couple has to be separated for at least 12 months.
