Assuming the two players consent to get divorced, they can mutually seek legal separation through a Joint Petition for Divorce. This is normally known as a "1A" divorce. Here, the gatherings mutually record an appeal with the court, which is joined by a Separation Agreement which settles all issues in regards to the divorce, and just need to demonstrate that the marriage is hopelessly broken, and there is zero chance at compromise.
If by some stroke of good luck one party needs a divorce, they can document a no-shortcoming divorce by recording a complaint ground for Divorce, normally known as a "1B" divorce. Here, the gatherings don't at first consent to divorce, however one life partner is expressing that the marriage is hopelessly broken, and has freely started the divorce cycle. For this situation, the life partner doesn't have to demonstrate that the other mate is to blame for the divorce; they basically need to demonstrate that the marriage is hopelessly broken and the gatherings get no opportunity at accommodating.
