What are the grounds for divorce?
You will need to demonstrate that your marriage has irretrievably broken down by being able to prove one of the following facts:
- Your spouse committed adultery
- Your spouse has demonstrated unreasonable behaviour
- Your partner has left/deserted you for a continuous period of 2 years
- You have been separated for at least 2 years and you both agree to the divorce
- You have been separated for at least 5 years (it doesn’t matter if your partner agrees to the divorce or not)
- If you have been married for less than 2 years, you can only use unreasonable behaviour, adultery or desertion as your reason for getting divorced.
Do we have to go to court for a divorce?
If you have agreed your divorce and financial arrangements, you will not need to attend court. Your divorce will be processed through the court without you needing to attend in person. If you are unable to come to agreement for financial arrangements, you will need to attend court in person.
What type of court orders can be made regarding children?
A Supervision Order is where a child is placed under the supervision of the Local Authority, but this does not give it parental responsibility. The child is not taken into care and remains with the parents, with the local authority being legally obliged to offer support and assistance to the child and his/her family.
An Interim Care Order is a temporary care order which gives social services parental responsibility for a child, which they then share with the parents. It means that social services can decide where a child will live while the court proceedings are continuing.
What is mediation?
Mediation helps couples going through separation or divorce to work out and agree arrangements for themselves and their children. If these issues can be agreed between you through mediation, it saves the cost of going through a Court to make the decisions for you.
