A: Hello! Since you have been separated for 13 years, how complicated your divorce would be would depend on whether you have minor children or assets and/or debts together. I cannot provide too much advice as I do not know your situation. It could be a very simple divorce and depending on the circumstances, you may not even need a marital settlement agreement, if there are no issues to resolve. You could possibly qualify for a flat fee divorce if there are no issues to resolve and the two of you are in agreement. However, more information is needed to give more accurate advice.
