Divorce (or dissolution of marriage) is the termination of a marriage or marital union, the canceling and/or reorganizing of the legal duties and responsibilities of marriage, thus dissolving the bonds of matrimony between a married couple under the rule of law of the particular country and/or state. Divorce laws vary considerably around the world, but in most countries it requires the sanction of a court or other authority in a legal process. The legal process of divorce may also involve issues of alimony (spousal support), child custody, child visitation / access, parenting time, child support, distribution of property, and division of debt. In most countries monogamy is required by law, so divorce allows each former partner to marry another person; where polygyny is legal but polyandry is not, divorce allows the woman to marry a new husband.

To be sued or to sue someone is called a civil action. The two most common types of civil claims are tort claims and contract claims. Tort law refers to laws that allow an injured person to obtain compensation from the person who caused the injury. Tort is most frequently alleged in motor vehicle accidents, and in personal injury and medical malpractice suits.
