In circumstances where a couple has been wed for less than 2 years, the Court requires the parties to go to a counselling session with a view to reconciliation. There are exceptions to this requirement if there is a history of violence or abuse or where one party can not be located.
At a Divorce hearing, the Court will have to consider that appropriate plans have actually been produced any child of the marital relationship, or a child from another relationship, or a child who has or was adopted or who is dealt with as a member of that household, and under the age of 18.
When a Divorce has been granted the Divorce becomes reliable one month and one day after the Order has been made.
Once a Divorce has worked, there is only a 12 month period in which to file an application for property/financial and spousal upkeep. An extension to this duration may be given in circumstances where both parties consent to the extension and the parties have the leave of the Court.
