How do I get separated?
You can demand separation without agreeing
In Denmark, each spouse has a unilateral right to legal separation. This means that if a spouse believes that he/she cannot continue the marriage, he/she can demand a separation even without giving a reason for it.
Divorce immediately if the parties agree, 6 months if they disagree
Divorce can be demanded immediately if the parties agree to divorce.
After 6 months, each spouse is entitled to a divorce, regardless of whether the other spouse disagrees.
However, remember that you are not automatically divorced after 6 months, it is always necessary to apply.
Must file for divorce after separation
After 6 months of separation, each spouse is entitled to a divorce, regardless of whether the other spouse disagrees.
You are not automatically divorced after 6 months. If you want a divorce, you must apply for it.
