Seeking expert testimony is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.
Divorce in the UK allows only one ground for divorce – the irretrievable breakdown of a marriage.which is divided into four areas:
- -Unreasonable behaviour
Unreasonable Behaviour is the most common grounds for divorce today. You must demonstrate that your wife has acted in such a way that you cannot reasonably be expected to live with her. Through your attorney you must file an unreasonalbe behaviour petition, alleging relatively mild allegations such as spending too much time with her career or avocation, having no interests in common, or pursuing a separate social life. These minor differences may suffice.
In your circumstances, using the Unreasonable Behaviour grounds would be more applicable than Adultery, since you were not married. Furthermore, if you knew about actual adultery, you would have had to file within six months of your revelation.
The other grounds, separation and desertion, would not apply at all.
Divorces are strictly an administrative procedure if the divorce is uncontested or undefended. If you both agree, it will not be contested. It is you two who set the grounds ofr Unreasonable Behaviour.
I hope this helps.
