The grounds for Divorce  
A Divorce commences by lodging at Court a Divorce Petition, and Statement of Arrangements for children (if applicable) and a Court fee (unless you are financially eligible for an exemption).  
There is one ground for Divorce - that the marriage has broken down irretrievably.  This is evidenced by one of the following five facts:

(a)  Your spouse has committed adultery and you find it intolerable to live with them.
(b)  Your spouse has behaved in such a way that you cannot reasonably be expected to live with them.
(c)  Your spouse has deserted you for a continuous period of at least two years immediately before the start of the divorce.
(d)  That you have lived apart for a continuous period of at least two years immediately before the start of the divorce and your spouse consents to a divorce.
(e)  That you have lived apart for a continuous period of at least five years immediately before the start of the divorce. 

If you are not using a solicitor then the forms can be provided by the local County Court or on the Ministry of Justice website. Court staff cannot give you legal advice.
