Is it possible to divorce in the UK when myself and my husband got married in New Zealand? Do I have to go through a special court to do this?
We are both UK citizens, he is possibly remaining in NZ with a 2yr visa,(being difficult, may return anytime) while I had to return home recently due to the marriage breaking down.
Does he have to be present in the UK as well as me to do this? Or will things get complex if we are both in different countries?
I found this info, but not sure if it's correct:
\"As long as an English court is satisfied that England is one of the parties ‘home country’ then the court can deal with a divorce, even in cases where someone has lived abroad for many years.\"
No children involved, just our UK home (currently rented out) and his UK pension.
As LMM said there maybe some complications if you are living in different countries.
I was married abroad (EU country) but we both lived in the UK and there was no problem getting divorced under UK law. If the divorce is straightforward attending court in person isn't necessary, my ex and I were never asked to attend court.
