What is a limited divorce?

A limited divorce is generally for people who do not have grounds for absolute divorce, but want their claims heard by the court. Limited divorce is a useful way to address time sensitive issues that arise during separation, namely: custody, child support, alimony, health insurance, and use and possession of a family home or family use personal property. If you and your spouse are able to resolve your differences through mediation or negotiation, a limited divorce may not be required.
