Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are separating.
Their marriage began in December 2018, and lasted for less than a year.
The couple enjoyed a covert wedding ceremony following the loss of their home to the devastating November California wildfires.
Cyrus and Hemsworth have a long history.
June saw Miley celebrate a 10-year anniversary with Hemsworth.
The stars met on the set of their film, ‘The Last Song’.
According to a representative of Miley Cyrus:
‘“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time.
Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers.
They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy,”
What is the difference between ‘legal separation’ and ‘divorce’ in California?
-for the most part it isn’t more beneficial for couples to legally separate rather than divorce
-California has a ‘no fault’ system; couples must choose between irreconcilable differences or your spouse’s incurable insanity
-However, the divorce process can be sped up by filing for legal separation first
–legal separation is not an option in California unless your spouse consents, or if they default after you have them served with your petition
–in this case, they must either refuse to participate in the process (letting it go through without objection), or file a response to your petition, consenting to legally separate
-otherwise, the only available option is to file for divorce
