Judicial separation advice   

If divorce isn’t the correct route for your situation, MRG Solicitors can advise on other alternatives to help you overcome any marital problems and strains within the relationship. Consult our teams in Manchester and London to learn more.  

Understanding the difference between judicial separation and divorce 

Many clients have circumstantial, religious, moral or legal reasons not to file for a divorce. A judicial separation is an alternative option for couples dealing with marital problems in these cases. Unlike a divorce, a legal separation, the court doesn’t require couples to wait for a year to prove that their marital ties are irreparable. They don’t even have to share extensive details and evidence of the problems they experience. In this regard, judicial separations simplify the situation from a legal perspective. 


Conversely, there are some similarities between the legal order related to financial and child arrangements. Interested clients can request the course to divide joint assets and grant custodial right, if required. The court’s involvement reduces the risk of disputes and ensures that your child’s wellbeing isn’t compromised during the separation.
