- How long do I have to be living apart from my spouse before I qualify for a divorce?
The Act requires that you be living apart from your spouse for a period of at least 4 of the preceeding 5 years. Living apart does not always mean in separate houses.
- Do I need a Separation Agreement?
No. However if you do have one the Courts can grant you a divorce on the same terms of the Separation Agreement but can change the terms. See Factors considered by Courts
- Do I need my spouse's consent to apply for a divorce?
