Understanding Divorce Law in the UK

At WLS Solicitors, we understand that divorce can be a challenging and emotional time for our clients. That’s why we are committed to providing expert legal advice and support throughout the process.

Grounds for Divorce

In the UK, there is only one ground for divorce – the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. However, this must be evidenced by one of the following five facts:

  1. Adultery
  2. Unreasonable behaviour
  3. Desertion
  4. Two years’ separation with consent
  5. Five years’ separation (no consent required)

It’s worth noting that adultery must be committed with a member of the opposite sex to be used as a ground for divorce.

Legal Separation vs Divorce

A legal separation is a formal agreement between a couple to live apart, which can be useful for couples who do not wish to divorce for personal or religious reasons. However, it’s important to note that a legal separation does not end the marriage and the couple cannot remarry.

Divorce, on the other hand, is the legal dissolution of a marriage. It allows both parties to remarry and can provide closure for couples who wish to move on with their lives.

At WLS Solicitors, we can provide expert advice on both legal separation and divorce, helping our clients to make informed decisions about their future.
