In order to satisfy the Court that the marital relationship has actually broken down irretrievably the couple needs to has been separated for at least twelve months and one day. This suggests a person can not request divorce until the parties have been separated for twelve months and one day.

It is possible for a couple in Bungalally to be separated however to continue living in the very same house during the twelve months, which is known as ‘separation under the one roof’.

Divorce proceedings are conducted entirely separately from other proceedings in between the couple and there is no responsibility on a party to commence divorce proceedings prior to taking action in relation to any other aspect of the marital relationship breakdown.

  •  emotional and psychological abuse
  • economic abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • behaviour which is coercive
  • behaviour which controls or dominates another individual and triggers them to fear for their safety or wellbeing.
