There is only one legal ground for divorce, which is that the marriage has irretrievably broken down.

The person issuing proceedings, is called the Petitioner. You must prove that the marriage has irretrievably broken down by establishing one of the following five facts: Adultery, Unreasonable behaviour, two years separation (with consent), Desertion and Five years separation. There is much to know about the grounds for divorce, so let’s take a look at each of them in detail in person. Book your appointment with our team today without any delay.
