Two Year Separation – Pre April 6th 2022 ground
What is a two-year separation with consent?
If partners have been continuously living separately for two years, they can file a petition for divorce. The couples can also be considered as separated by the court if they are living separate lives in the same house such as eating alone and sleeping alone. The parties need to show that they had the intention to separate for reasons outside of work etc.
What if we reunite for a while in two-year period?
As long as these periods do not exceed 6 months in total, the two-year separation ground can still be valid.
Can I petition divorce by myself without the participation of my partner?
No, the other partner must consent to the petition as a respondent. Therefore, we advise you to agree with your partner beforehand.
