Grounds for divorce
Before we can commence the divorce proceedings, we’ll need to understand your circumstances. You will be required to cite one of the following reasons for your divorce:
- Adultery – if your spouse has committed adultery, you will either have to prove this, or your spouse will have to agree to this.
- Behaviour – if you cannot live with your spouse due to their behaviour, you will need to provide examples of unreasonable behaviour they have exhibited. Your spouse does not have to consent to this.
- You and your spouse have been separated for a minimum of two years and both agree to file for divorce.
- You and your spouse have been separated for a minimum of five years. No consent is required for this.
- Desertion – you will need to show that your spouse has abandoned you for a minimum of two years without your consent or good reason.
You will need to confirm how long you have been married as you cannot begin divorce proceedings unless you have been married for more than 12 months.
You are also required to state why you consider that the marriage has irretrievably broken down i.e., that you can no longer be expected to continue with the marriage.
The long-awaited no-fault divorce has come into force. You must cite one of the reasons below for your divorce to support that the marriage has irretrievably broken down.
1. Adultery – you will have to prove this, or your spouse must agree to this.
2. Behaviour – this is the most commonly used ground for divorce. You will need to provide examples of unreasonable behaviour and why you cannot be expected to continue the marriage as a result. Your spouse is not required to consent to this.
3. Separated for 2 years and consents to the divorce.
4. Separated for 5 years, no consent is required.
5. Desertion – this is more than separation; it is complete abandonment and rarely used as a ground.
