Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are the grounds for obtaining a divorce?

To obtain a divorce, applicants have to establish that their marriage has broken down “irretrievably” for one of the following reasons:

  • Their spouse has committed adultery, and the applicant finds it intolerable to live with them;
  • Their spouse has behaved in such a way that they cannot reasonably be expected to live with them;
  • Desertion for a continuous period of two years or more;
    The parties have lived separately for two or more years and both consent to the divorce;
  • The parties have lived separately for five or more years, whether or not both parties consent to a divorce.
  • In 2020 the government passed a law to bring in “no-fault” divorce, and it is anticipated that the law will take effect from autumn 2021. There will then be no need to provide a reason for the breakdown of the marriage when applying for a divorce.

Q: How should we approach arrangements for children?

When parents separate, they need to agree arrangements for their children, including as to where the children will live and their time with each parent, as well as matters such as education and holidays. The guiding principle should always be the children’s best interests. Every family situation is unique, and there is no presumption as to how much time a child should spend with each of their parents. Whilst there is no need to formalise arrangements where they are agreed, many parents find it helpful to have a written “parenting plan” for clarity. If agreement cannot be reached, the court can be asked to make a decision.

Q: How will our financial arrangements be approached?

The court has a wide discretion when making financial orders on divorce and will seek to produce a fair outcome based on all the circumstances. As a starting point, assets built up during the marriage (“marital assets”) may be divided equally unless there is a good reason to depart from equality, and “non-marital assets”, including gifts, inheritances, and wealth generated before or after the marriage may not be shared. However, ensuring both parties’ needs are met is an overriding factor, and will be determinative in many cases.

Q: Will there be ongoing maintenance payments?

Spousal maintenance will often be ordered if one party needs ongoing financial support to meet their living costs, and the other can afford to provide it. Maintenance can be ordered for a fixed duration, for example to give time for one party to retrain and find work, or for life, and the appropriate duration depends on the circumstances. Where affordable, maintenance can be “capitalised” and paid as a lump sum to achieve a “clean break”, meaning there will be no ongoing financial connection between the parties.

Child maintenance is separate from spousal maintenance and is calculated based on the paying parent’s income. 

Q: Do we have to go to court to resolve financial arrangements?

No, in fact only a small minority of cases are decided by the court. There are many ways to reach financial settlement, including through solicitor-led negotiations, mediation and arbitration. The same legal principles apply whichever process is used, and all require both parties to make full financial disclosure. The majority of our cases settle out of court, and we have the skills and experience to deal with all aspects your case, whichever process is chosen.
