Divorce Lawyers in Kamloops
Divorce is the formal termination of a marriage, and is distinct from separation. In order to separate, one spouse must simply advise the other that he or she wants to permanently end the relationship. A divorce in Kamloops requires a formal order from the Supreme Court of British Columbia. If you want to permanently end a marriage, it is important to obtain a divorce. Until you obtain a divorce, you cannot remarry, and your former spouse will have the right to file court applications against your property and your estate. Many legal rights in family law do not begin to expire until after a divorce is granted.
The Time and Cost of a Divorce
How long a divorce takes depends on many factors such as the parties involved, how complicated assets are to divide, and whether children are involved. Costs will also depend on how long the process takes as well as things such as how much paperwork must be filed, court fees, and lawyer fees. For a more detailed idea of what costs to expect, please consult with one of our lawyers at Soll & Company.
