Sometimes, relationships will fail. Depending on the type of relationship you had and the way it ended, there are different routes you can take to settle your separation. Often, married couples will either choose divorce or dissolution to settle their split.
Relationships can break down for a number of different reasons, the main ones being adultery, unreasonable behaviour from either one or both sides of the relationship or simply just a separation decided upon by both sides.
Some separations are simple and easy to deal with, however, some of them have complications along the way and require a little more care and sensitivity to deal with.
Divorce and dissolution are both ways you can end a legally binding relationship such as marriage, however, there are some key differences between these methods that people should be aware of before they continue down either route.
