Divorce

Divorce is a procedure by which you bring your marriage to an end. Divorce is never automatic no matter how long you have lived apart. You will always need to apply to the Court for a divorce and to show reasons why you are divorcing. The most common reasons are your partner’s unreasonable behaviour or adultery. You may also be able to divorce on the grounds of separation if you have lived apart for at least two years. In most cases, you will not need to go to Court and your Divorce will be dealt with on paper.
