Hi,
I’m on an iPhone so this site isn’t showing up so well.
I want to divorce my Mother. Not upset or unhappy - I’m just done with her drama.
Can you help? I’ll pay whatever you require. I just need her to understand she’s out of my life and not getting back in.

You cannot divorce your mother as you can only divorce a wife.

There is no legal way to distance yourself from your mother apart from changing your surname if it is the same as yours.

If there are any further points please reply I will be happy to respond.

Kindly accept or rate my answer so I get credit for my time.

Best wishes

Michael
