Q & A
Q: I have been served with an Application for a Divorce. Can I oppose it?
A: The only ground for a divorce is that the marriage has ‘irretrievably broken down’. The evidence of this is 12 months separation.
The only way then to stop a divorce being granted, is to show the court that there has not been 12 months separation.
If you seek to oppose the divorce, you must file a Response to a Divorce Application setting out your evidence why the divorce should not be granted. Any Response must be filed within 28 days of being served.
