To obtain a divorce you will need to prove to the Court that your marriage has irretrievably broken down.
The Court will accept one or more of the following facts as proof:
- That your spouse has committed adultery and that you find it intolerable to live with them
- That your spouse has behaved in such a way that you cannot reasonably be expected to continue living with them
- That your spouse has deserted you for at least two years
- That you and your spouse have lived separately and apart for two years and he or she consents to a divorce
- That you and your spouse have lived apart for a continuous period of at least five years.
