To qualify to apply for divorce in England or Wales you must either:

  1. Currently live in England or Wales ( and be of any nationality), OR
  2. Live overseas but have a strong link to England or Wales (e.g. born in UK, have UK passport)

You must have been married for 12 months before you can start a divorce. It does not matter which country you got married in.

If you, your spouse or your children are not UK nationals then please call our helpline for further advice.
