To obtain a divorce your spouse 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 you have committed adultery and your spouse finds it intolerable to live with you
- That you have behaved in such a way that your spouse cannot reasonably be expected to continue to live with you
- That you have deserted your spouse for at least two years
- That you and your spouse have lived separately and apart for two years and you consent to a divorce
- That you and your spouse have lived apart for a continuous period of at least five years.
