Republic of Ireland Law Questions Answered by Experts
1. Hello, you will be able to get a final divorce as and from August 2016, as then you will have been living apart for four years. In the meantime, you can institute proceedings for a legal separation, which will deal with all matters between you apart from give you the right to remarry. However, what i would suggest is that you get proceedings started today, getting all issues sorted out and then once August comes, get the final divorce decree issued. Normally, there are quite considerable delays in legal proceedings and you will not get everything sorted out immediately. So start proceedings today as legal separation proceedings and once August comes change them into divorce proceedings.
2. Be prepared to deal with all issues such as maintenance, custody and access, ownership of any family residence, property rights and pension rights. If you can afford it, I would recommend getting a solicitor to help you with it. Get a quote in advance. If you want a divorce pack of papers, you can get them from the office of your local County Registrar. These will enable you to make the application yourself if you wish to follow this course.
