Information if you want to divorce your spouse
If you have decided that your marriage has ended and there is no chance of it ever getting back on track, we can help with a divorce. The law says that you can only get divorced if one of the following facts apply:
- You have lived apart for at least two years and you both agree to a divorce
- You have lived apart for five years – it doesn’t matter whether your spouse agrees to the divorce or not
- Your spouse has behaved unreasonably
- Your spouse has committed adultery
- Your spouse deserted you at least two years ago
Information if your spouse is divorcing you
Your spouse needs to prove that one of the five facts listed above apply. You would be known as the Respondent in the divorce. This does not always put you at a disadvantage but it is best to speak to us before signing any papers.
If you do not want to get divorced, you can contest it but the grounds are limited. Contested divorces tend to take a long time to be resolved and very few result in a couple remaining married.
The basis of the divorce does not always mean that one party is disadvantages when it comes to dealing with finances and children.
Information if you don’t want to divorce but you want to formally separate
There are various options including a separation agreement or a Judicial Separation. These will mean that you remain married but that your financial circumstances and arrangements for your children are formally recorded
