Can I apply for a divorce if I have been married for less than two years?

By 9 February, 2018

There are additional requirements if you are applying for a divorce and have been married for less than two years. This would mean that you separated in the first year of your marriage as you must be separated for twelve months prior to making the Application. If this is the case we can obtain more information from you to see whether you can proceed. In these circumstances it may be the case that you are required to have attended or considered counselling where the separation is so soon.
