To petition for divorce, you must have been married for more than one year immediately preceding the presentation of the petition. The ground for divorce is the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage, and the petitioner, that is the person filing a petition for divorce, must use one of five different facts to support this statement.

  • That the other party has committed adultery.
  • That the other party has behaved in an unreasonable way.
  • That the other party has deserted the petitioner for 2 years.
  • That the parties have lived apart from each other for a continuous period of at least 2 years immediately preceding the presentation of a petition and the other party gives their consent.
  • That the parties have lived apart for a continuous period of at least 5 years preceding the presentation of a petition.
