You will need to have been married for at least one year in order to be granted a divorce. If you have not been married for one year at the time the divorce petition is presented to the Court, you may wish to agree a separation instead.
You will also need to provide evidence that your marriage has broken down irretrievably. There are five grounds for divorce which are: adultery, unreasonable behaviour, desertion, two years’ separation if both parties consent and five years’ separation even if they do not. In the forms, we provide advice about each of these grounds and how they may apply to your circumstances.
