Frequently Asked Questions
When Can I file for Divorce?
Going through a divorce can be a very difficult time that you more than likely will want to get over and done with as quickly as possible. However, a divorce application cannot be made within 12 months of marriage. You will also need to show that you have been living apart for at least 12 months.
