What is a divorce?


A divorce is the legal procedure that ends a marriage.

When a Judge of the Family Court grants your divorce, he or she will hand down an Interim Judgment of Divorce. This is the end of the first stage of your divorce proceedings.

The Interim Judgment does not settle issues about the children, property or maintenance. In legal language, issues about the children, property and maintenance are known as ‘ancillary matters.’

The ancillary matters are usually dealt with after the Court has granted the Interim Judgment. This is the second stage of divorce proceedings.
