Hi, hopefully I have put this in the right place. I am in the process of filling in the divorce petition and would like some guidance about the Statement of Case. Please can I have some feedback on this

"The respondent and I separated in November 2009. The respondent left the matrimonial home at that time and did not return. The separation came about due to continuous arguments over money. Both parties consent to a divorce based on two years separation"

Is this sufficient? Do I need to add anything else?

Thanks in advance

You don''t need the reasons for the separation, I would leave that sentence out. Apart from that, all fine.
