Divorce can be the most emotionally straining and stressful time in any person’s life. Here at Kew Law, we will take as much of the stress from you as possible and allow you to focus on what matters in your life, whether that be your children or moving on from your marriage breakdown.
When can you get a divorce?
Under the law you must have first been married for a period of one year and a day before you apply for a divorce. This is known as the, ‘Year Bar’. Your marriage must be, ‘valid’ and be a registered marriage within the UK. When making an application for divorce you must provide us with your original or certified copy of your Marriage Certificate.
What are the Grounds for Divorce?
There is one ground for divorce and that is the ‘irretrievable breakdown of the marriage’.
