How to file for divorce
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 of the opposite sex who is not their spouse.
• Unreasonable behaviour
Any behaviour on the part of an individual which means that it cannot be reasonably 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
When a married couple have lived apart for two years, and both agree to the divorce.
• Five years of separation
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.
