It is important that you contact a lawyer to advise you in relation to your divorce at the earliest possible stage. Obviously there will be a huge impact on your daily life once the decision is made to begin divorce proceedings. At Henry Hyams our family law team will do what we can to minimise the disruption.
To petition for divorce you must have been married for at least a year. The only ground for divorce is that there has been the irretrievable breakdown of marriage which you must prove through 1 of 5 facts:
• Unreasonable behaviour
• Two years separation by consent
• Five years separation
There are pros and cons to using some of these facts. We will listen to the circumstances of your case and advise you of your options.
