Frequently asked questions.

Under current laws in England and Wales, divorce is only possible if there has been an irretrievable breakdown of your marriage. In support, you must establish one or more of the following facts as grounds for divorce.

Adultery
Unreasonable behaviour
Desertion
Two years’ separation with consent
Five years’ separation without consent

However, it is currently expected that in the autumn of 2021, the rules will change so that a No Fault Divorce will be introduced under the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill.

This will make divorce more accessible and offer a swifter means of dissolving a marriage for couples who would otherwise have to wait at least two years to divorce.

No. You must have been married for a minimum of 12 months before you can file for divorce. However, if you have been married for less than a year, you can start to prepare by drafting a petition ready to send to the Court. You just can’t send it to Court until one year after your marriage date.

Under professional conduct rules, Cartwright King is unable to represent both parties in a divorce case. Even if an agreement has been reached and everything is amicable, representing both parties is just not possible.

If we were to act for both parties in a divorce, a situation may arise when advising or drafting where there is a conflict of interest. This could threaten the validity of any agreements reached.
