Grounds for divorce
Divorce simply put means bringing a marriage to an end. A marriage is not ended until a Decree Absolute is granted by the Court. The pronouncement of a Decree Absolute cancels all legal duties and responsibilities of the marriage. Divorce essentially ends the legal contract of marriage.
The divorce process does not include making final arrangements for children or financial settlements. Although often very relevant to a separating couple, these arrangements are in addition to the divorce itself and can be dealt with either by agreement or by applications to Court if agreements cannot be reached.
What is the ‘ground’ for divorce?
There is only one ground for divorce and that is that the marriage has irretrievably broken down. However the person applying for the divorce must choose one of five facts to prove that the relationship has broken down.
