We understand that ending a relationship can be a particularly difficult time, but our specialist family solicitors/lawyers can assist you to achieve the outcome that is right for you. We can meet with you to understand your needs, the approach you would like to take and to discuss with you the relevant process.
To obtain a divorce or dissolve a civil partnership, you must prove that the marriage or civil partnership has ‘irretrievably broken down’. In order to prove this, you must satisfy the Court that one of the following 5 facts applies:
- Adultery and intolerability;
- That your partner has behaved in such a way that you can no longer be expected to live with them;
- That your partner has deserted you for a continuous period of 2 years;
- 2 years separation and consent; and
- 5 years separation.
