What is the legal process for getting divorced?

The legal process involved in dissolving your marriage is relatively straight forward and is usually a paper-based exercise. The Divorce process itself takes between 4 to 6 months and takes you from being married to unmarried.

You must have been married for at least one year and the only ground for divorce in England and Wales is that the marriage has broken down irretrievably.

Legal reasons for divorce

There are 5 ways of demonstrating that your marriage has broken down to the court, which are:

  • Adultery
  • Unreasonable Behaviour
  • Desertion
  • Separation for two years or more with the other person’s consent
  • Separation for five years or more

However, where divorce becomes more complex is where there are children or complex finances involved.  This may involve tactful negation, and formal agreements to ensure all parties know where they stand and what their rights and obligations are.
