When can I apply for a divorce?

By

As a general rule, you must be separated from your spouse for at least 12 months before you can apply for divorce. Learn more about separation – see Family law myths, busted.

You may be separated and still living under the same roof as a spouse, although the Court will require detailed evidence of these arrangements.

You may resume your relationship once for up to three months during the separation period but you must still have been separated for 12 months in total before you can apply.
