For honest and straightforward advice on your divorce call our team of specialist family law and divorce lawyers at our offices in Leicester, Hinckley and Market Harborough to discuss your situation today.
Under English and Welsh law you can file for divorce based on one ground – the irretrievable breakdown of a marriage – which is split into five facts. These are:
Adultery is sexual intercourse between someone who is married and an individual who is not their spouse.
• Unreasonable behaviour
Any behaviour on the part of an individual which means that it cannot be reasonably be expected for their spouse to live with him or her. Covers a wide range of behaviour but not adultery.
• Two years of separation with the consent of your spouse
This is when a married couple have lived apart for two years, and both agree to the divorce.
• Five years of separation
This is when a married couple have lived apart for five years
• Two years of desertion
This is very rarely used and it must be proven that a spouse has deserted their partner for at least two years against their wishes and without reason.
Adultery and unreasonable behaviour are the two most commonly cited reasons for divorce, but whatever the reason behind your divorce, our experienced solicitors can help.
Financial worries about the cost of divorce only add to what is already a difficult time and this is why we offer competitively-priced fixed fee divorces in certain circumstances. To find out more speak to our family law solicitors in Leicester, Hinckley and Market Harborough today.
