Do I have to wait 2 years to divorce?

Jun 05, 2020

I hear all the time that unless you've been separate for more than 2 years you can't get divorced.

This is not true!

What grounds can I use?

You can get divorced using one of the grounds that doesn't include separation for 2 years

  • Unreasonable behaviour
  • adultery

Do I have to blame the other person?

Some people don't know that this is even an option for them to get their divorce finalised without having to wait so long. For other people they don't want to 'blame' the other person. 

We can prepare your divorce petition so that the reasons for divorce will not upset the other person and they don't feel blamed. Until the law is changed this is the only option to get divorced sooner than 2 years.

This can be daunting for some as they will worry that they will sound as though they will be blaming the collapse of the marriage on the other person. Don't worry. There are ways that this can be managed so that everyone is okay.

The journey it takes to finally decide that you definitely want a divorce is hard enough just to be told that it is not possible. Consider unreasonable behaviour as an option. It does not need to be as difficult as you think.
