The purpose of a divorce is to terminate a marriage between two people. However, you can only obtain a divorce if you have a legal reason for the court to then decide.
- Your partner has committed adultery and you find it intolerable to continue living with him
- Your partner has been abusive or behaved in such a way that it would be unreasonable to continue living with him.
- Your partner has purposefully left you for a continuous period of at least two years or more.
- You have been living separately from your spouse for two years or more and they consent to the divorce being granted.
- You have been living separately from your spouse for five years or more, whether or not your spouse agrees to the divorce.
Either person in the relationship has the right to file for a divorce if one or more of the conditions above have been met. At AH Page, we aim to help our clients go through the process of divorce and provide you with the best support.
