    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.
