I am sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, but I have scanned this, and other forums, but cannot find it referenced at all.

It is basically whether behaviour after the date of separation can be included in the justification for a divorce when citing unreasonable behaviour, in the same way which adultery can?

The reason for this is that since separation I have naturally been much more diligent in ensuring I keep evidence of abuse, threats etc, whereas if evidence is required from before separation, I'm not sure I can provide such substantial evidence.

If necessary I will provide examples, but if contested, which I have no doubt it will just to make my life as difficult as possible, I would feel more comfortable being able to offer something more concrete and tangiable.

Thank you in advance for any answers anyone provides.

You should use examples of behaviour that occurred during the last 6 months of you living together. When you apply for the Decree Nisi, you are asked if the behaviour is still ongoing, and to what effect.
