Divorce is the legal conclusion of an existing marriage. There are two types of divorce—absolute and limited. An absolute divorce completely undoes the marriage and entitles both parties to remarry; marital property to be divided; and alimony (if applicable) to be awarded. A limited divorce is essentially a legal separation from “bed and board” where the parties live separately and do not cohabitate for a specified period. With a limited divorce the parties are still legally married so they cannot remarry or divide property but are entitled to alimony on a temporary basis.
Going through a divorce of any kind can be burdensome when considering all of the physical and emotional division that comes along with it. Let the Murphy Law Firm help you get through your divorce and legally end your marriage.
