Ask Your Own New Zealand Law Question

While you are thinking about the telephone offer, the steps to obtain a divorce are fairly simple. The only grounds for divorce are that you have been separated for more than two years. In the meantime, if you do separate you will need to sort out relationship property and if you have children, you will need to agree on parenting and contact arrangements.

Ask Your Own New Zealand Law Question

He cannot use an alleged affair as grounds for obtaining a divorce any sooner. The only ground is separation. If there are communication problems and you want to try to save the marriage, then there are counselling services available which can often help even if you decide to separate.

Thank you that was very helpful, he doesn’t want me to contact him again, and I feel abandoned cause he walk out and he said I got a month to move out, we have been married for 15 yrs on may 3th
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Do I have to move out, we have a daughter that 17 yrs
You don’t have to move out. However the home will need to be sold if you cannot afford to buy him out, or if both of you cannot agree on what happens with the house. He cannot tell you to just move out. You will need to get a lawyer if you cannot agree together on things and need to go to court

But you can stay until the house is sold
