To make an Application for Divorce, it is necessary that you have been separated from your spouse for a minimum period of 12 months.
It is possible that all or part of the separation has occurred while the parties continued to reside under the same roof. In these circumstances, it is necessary for the parties to establish that they were living “separately and apart”. Further information regarding the meaning of this can be obtained by contacting our divorce lawyers.
An Application for Divorce can be made as an individual or jointly with your spouse. If there are children of the marriage under the age of eighteen (18), it will be necessary that the parties attend the Court hearing and satisfy the Court that suitable arrangements have been made for the care of the children, unless certain circumstances apply.
Our family lawyers are able to provide you with advice regarding all aspects of the divorce process.
