We provide a free 30 minute consultation where we will discuss all your options with you. If you have been married for more than a year and either you or your spouse live in England and Wales, then it is open to you to seek a divorce. If neither you nor your spouse live in England or Wales, the court may not be able to deal with your divorce. It is important to establish that the court has jurisdiction so if you are in any doubt speak to one of our family law solicitors.
The ground for divorce is that the marriage has irretrievably broken down and in order to prove this you must rely on one of five facts these are:
- Unreasonable behaviour.
- Separation for 2 years with both parties' consent.
- Separation for 5 years without the other person's consent.
Our divorce solicitors can advise you on the best option for you and the best way of ensuring that the divorce proceeds smoothly without any objection from your partner.
