Separation of 2 years with consent

You can divorce after two years of separation if you have been living apart and both parties are in agreement.

If you are separated but still living together for financial reasons or because of children, you must show the court that you’ve been living separate lives, which can be difficult.

If you can’t prove that you’ve been living separate lives then it might be worth exploring another option, such as unreasonable behaviour.
