UK Family Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
There is only one ground on which divorce can be obtained and that is an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. You prove this by citing one of five facts:
1. Unreasonable behaviour
3. 2 year separation with consent of both parties
4. 5 year separation without the consent of the other party
If the divorce petition is likely to be acknowledged by the respondent and not defended in open court then no one of the 5 facts take any longer than the other.
A divorce within 6-9 months is possible on the basis that it is an undefended claim and you are able to agree a financial settlement without protracted negotiation.
