Separation / Divorce
In your case all you might need is a simple separation agreement, which is relatively inexpensive if not contested. Once that is completed, a simple uncontested divorce can be completed for you, which is also relatively inexpensive and can be done without attendance at court.
It is important that you establish your date of separation since your assets and debts accumulated throughout the marriage (your net family property) will be equalized based on the date of your marriage/commencement of cohabitation, and date of separation.
If you plan to re-marry, in most cases you must wait at least one year after your date of separation to obtain a divorce. You cannot legally remarry unless you are divorced.
