Grounds for Divorce
If you want to divorce, you must demonstrate 1 of 5 facts:
- Unreasonable behaviour
- 2 years separation (with the consent of your spouse)
- 5 years separation (you don’t need an agreement from your spouse in this case).
How to get a UK divorce
To get divorced you should have been married for at least 1 year. There are several steps to ending a marriage which include completing and filing relevant documents with the courts. It’s extremely important that these documents are completed correctly.
Marriage annulment can only be granted in very specific circumstances. One of our family law solicitors will be able to advise you further.
Cost of Divorce
Fixed prices are available from Woolley & Co. For the person beginning divorce proceedings it’s £725 + VAT and court fees. If you’re a respondent in divorce, it’s £500 + VAT. There may be additional costs, depending on whether you have finances and children to consider.
Divorce in England
Divorce through the courts of England and Wales is generally open to anyone living here, but may also be available to expats living around the world. Our expert team of family law solicitors can advise on all aspects of divorce in England for expats.
