In order to get a divorce in England and Wales, it is a legal requirement that you have been married for at least one year. The Petition must state that the marriage has irretrievably broken down by providing evidence that one of the following reasons apply:-

  • That the other party has committed adultery
  • That the other party has behaved in a way that is unreasonable
  • That the the parties have lived apart for at least two years and they both agree to a divorce
  • One party has deserted the other for at least two years
  • The parties have lived apart for at least five years

During or after the divorce proceedings, either party is entitled to apply for a financial order whether by way of a maintenance order, a lump sum payment or an adjustment of their interest in property, pensions and other assets owned solely or jointly.
