How to get a UK divorce

Myth
  Myth
“I want to start divorce proceedings on the basis of two years’ separation, but neither my spouse nor I officially recorded the date the separation started. I can’t prove we have been apart for two years and so can’t start proceedings.”
Fact
  Fact
You do not need any official record of your separation date. As long as at least two years has elapsed from the date of separation to the time you issue your petition, you can commence proceedings. If you divorce on this basis, your spouse will need to consent to a petition being issued. If he or she does not consent, your petition will fail and you will have to wait for five years’ separation or use another one of the grounds for divorce.
