You can get a divorce if you have been married at least a year and your relationship has permanently broken down.
You must have a marriage that is legally recognised in the UK, and have a permanent home in England or Wales.
There are 3 main steps to getting divorced:
File a divorce petition – you have to apply to the court for permission to divorce, and show reasons why you want the marriage to end.
Apply for a decree nisi – if your spouse agrees to the petition, you’ll get a document saying there’s no reason you can’t divorce.
Apply for a decree absolute – this legally ends your marriage – you need to wait 6 weeks after you get the decree nisi before you can apply.
