The jurisdiction bit (EU council 3.1) allows the court to deal with the divorce.

So if you were both born here and still live here its the first box to tick then habitual residence, job done.

because your asking a judge to dissolve a marriage all the forms must be correct, any mistakes and they will be sent back, a mistake on the form you are looking at will cost you £90 each time to correct, plus they send the application fee back, even worse when correcting the D8 there are rules about how it should be done even to the point of what colour ink to underline the amendments with :blink:

The reasons used to show the marriage has broken down are unique to your marriage but often they include things like the breakdown of communication lack of intimacy ect, if you no longer live together also add that.

If you use the wiki search bar for examples of UB you will see how others have written this section.

Take a look at the other forms you need, the affidavit and Directions for trial and the D36, you can always post questions here and there is also a phone helpline if your stuck.

Personally i just used the wiki solicitor to do the lot including the Consent Order that must be written by a solicitor anyway.
