If we separate but get back together for a short period does this affect the Application?

By 9 February, 2018

The divorce process allows for brief periods of reconciliation provided they are together for less than a period of three months. The 12 month period of separation does not include the reconciliation periods so that if you get back together for a month but then separate again you will need to have been separated for a total period of 13 months including the 1 month that you got back together. Our questionnaire will assist in this regard to confirm that you are eligible to lodge your Application to avoid dispute on this issue.
