In order to apply for a divorce there are a number of statutory conditions which need first be met. This includes the requirement that you and your partner must have been separated for at least 12 months and the marriage must have broken down irretrievably. There must be no reasonable likelihood of you and your partner getting back together. If you have not been married for at least 2 years, you may also be required to attend marriage counselling.
