Grounds for Divorce
If you and your partner have been married or in a civil partnership for at least a year, you will be eligible for divorce. Your marriage or civil partnership must also be recognised as valid by United Kingdom law. There are, however, certain grounds for divorce that you need to meet in order for you to be eligible. There are five categories in which your reason for divorce must fall under:
- Unreasonable Behaviour
- Two years separation and an agreement from your partner to divorce
- Five years separation (in this case, you do not need an agreement.)
