In order for a divorce to be granted you need have been married for one year and prove that the marriage has irretrievably broken down.

To do this you need to rely on one of five facts:

  • adultery
  • unreasonable behaviour
  • desertion
  • two years separation with consent
  • five years separation without consent

All cases are different but if both parties co-operate and there are no unforeseen delays, it takes four to six months for the certificate of entitlement for divorce (Decree Nisi) to be granted. This does not include dealing with financial issues and often you will be advised not to apply for the final Decree until such time as financial matters have been dealt with.

We can advise on all aspects of divorce, separation and related issues, explaining the powers of the court and the options available to you. We conduct proceedings in all courts, including the Central Family Court in London.
