The Five Grounds for Divorce

To be able to divorce, the court must be satisfied that the marriage has irretrievably broken down. To prove irretrievable breakdown, you must rely on one or more of the following facts:

  • Adultery
  • Unreasonable behaviour
  • Desertion
  • Separation for 2 years and application with consent of both parties
  • Separation for 5 years (no need for consent).

We will discuss these with you to establish on which of the five facts you may be able to rely.
