I am planning to take divorce from my partner. We are ready to do out of court settlement. We are leaving separately for more than a year. Will out of court settlement is acceptable all over the world? Or do I need a court order saying that he is no longer my husband/Spouse. I want to do a fresh start in my life. I do not want any penny from him & do not want any obligation down the road. Will out of court settlement be acceptable all over the world or it is not? May be I can start my career in different country. I do not know anything at this point. I want to resolve this issue once it for all so that it can not create any legal issue, problems in my future. What to do next? My parents are old & I do not have any kids.
