The Grounds for Divorce & Two Years’ Separation

Sally Clark Blog

The next fact we will be looking at this week is two years’ separation with consent.

To rely on the fact of two years’ separation with consent as the basis of your divorce petition, it must be proven that you and your spouse have lived apart for a continuous period of at least two years’ and that your spouse consents (in writing) to the divorce.

To rely upon this fact does not mean that you will have had to be living separately for those two years, as you can be considered as living separate and apart whilst still living in the same property.
