About Divorce and Separation
A “separation” is when a couple decides to live apart from each other because the relationship has broken down. The couple may be married, or they may be unmarried but living together like a married couple in a common-law relationship.
A “divorce” is when a court officially ends a marriage. Only legally married couples can divorce.
