In Dundee, subject to the laws of Scotland, the grounds for divorce are 'irretrievable breakdown' of your marriage. There law allows for four reasons why this could happen:
- unreasonable behaviour
- non-cohabitation for a period of two years
non-cohabitation for a period of one year with the consent of the other party
If there are no children in the marriage and no financial claims are made by either party in the relationship, and of the four reasons, the ground for divorce is non-cohabitation then a so called 'quickie divorce' can be obtained.
However, if there are children involved in the relationship and/or there is some debate as to financial issues, such as what will happen to the house, savings, car, maintenance etc, then divorce cannot be granted without resolution from the courts. In this case you will have to go through a lawyer.
