What is divorce?
Divorce is a legal action between married people to terminate their marriage relationship. You can only apply to the court in England and Wales for your marriage to be brought to an end provided that you have been married for at least a one year
Grounds for divorce?
There is only one ground for divorce which is that the marriage has irretrievably broken down. Thereafter, filing of petition to the Court.
What Adel Jibs will do for you?
We will prepare all divorce documentation for you and issue it at court. A petitioner can prove that the marriage has irretrievably broken down in one of five ways:-
- by proving that the respondent has committed adultery and that s/he finds it intolerable to live with the respondent.
- unreasonable behaviour of the respondent
- desertion by the respondent
- two years separation, provided the respondent consents.
- five years separation
Decree Nisi – This is the first stage of the divorce.
At Adel Jibs we will provide documentation to enable the court to consider whether grounds for divorce have been sufficiently proven so as to enable the court to make a pronouncement on your petition.
Decree Absolute – This is the final stage of the divorce.
After six weeks Adel Jibs will be entitled to make an application for the Nisi to be made Absolute on your behalf, and it is our usual practice to wait for any outstanding financial issues to be resolved before making the application.
