The ground for divorce is that your marriage has broken down irretrievably. You must have been married for a year or more and the Court must have jurisdiction i.e. there are no international issues which cause a problem. The law then says you must provide evidence, in writing, on your divorce application form explaining why you think your marriage has broken down. This evidence must fall into one of 5 categories:
- Adultery and you find it intolerable to live with the other person because of the adultery.
- Behaviour that you find unreasonable.
- Separation for 2 years or more and the other person consents to being divorced.
- Separation for 5 years or more.
