Separation and divorce are often experienced as an overwhelming loss. Not only have you lost a partner, friend, and lover, you may also feel as if you are losing your sense of self.

Both are so-called no-fault grounds-that is, a party does not have to prove that his spouse did something wrong (for example, committed adultery) to get a divorce. The two grounds are voluntary separation for six months, or separation for a year. The difference between the two is that with the former, the couple must agree to separate-that is, the separation must be voluntary.
