Hi all. I just wrote to introduce myself and am also writing here to ask a legal question.
My husband and I only married in Feb 2012 and are planning to divorce next year. The reasons are that he has done a u-turn on children after our failed IVF and fertility testing and that he no longer will consider adoption. Its a deal-breaker situation for me whereas he feels he can live without kids.
Anyway, we have been domiciled in the Middle East for the past 5-10 years and got married in South Africa (with a prenup) and have very recently relocated to the UK. I have just read that here we need to be separated for 2 years before we can divorce. I dont want to wait that long because I need to be divorced for some years before I am deemed ''stable'' enough to adopt.
He also wants to move on.
How can we do this quicker - do we need to return to SA?
Or is there a way we can do this quicker here in the UK?
Many thanks for any advice in advance
You can start a divorce in the UK anytime from Feb 2013 on the basis of unreasonable behaviour.
Unreasonable behaviour can be many things - such as "you argued too often" or "there was a lack of physical intimacy" etc. The statements of unreasonable behaviour do not have to be proven and it is not necessary for your spouse to admit to the behaviour.
