Can I get a divorce in England?

In order to get a divorce in England, you would need a sufficient connection with England and Wales. For example, if you are habitually resident in England and Wales, you may be eligible to get a divorce here, even if you were married elsewhere.

In order to get a divorce in England and Wales, you (or your spouse) will have to fall into a particular category. Either:

  • Both you and your spouse are habitually resident in England or Wales
  • England or Wales was the last habitual residence of you and your spouse and one of you is still living there
  • The respondent is habitually resident there
  • The petitioner has lived in England or Wales for the 12 months just before starting the divorce proceedings
  • The petitioner has lived in England or Wales for the 6 months just before starting the divorce proceedings and is domiciled there
  • Both you and your spouse are domiciled in England and Wales

There may also be some other limited circumstances where you could find that you could divorce in England and Wales, if only you or your spouse is domiciled in there. Speak to us for more information.
