There is no immediate ‘no fault’ divorce under the law of England and Wales.
The sole ground upon which a divorce may be granted is that the marriage has broken down irretrievably. However, this can only be established by proving one of the following five facts:
The nearest option to a ‘no fault’ divorce is therefore either two years’ separation with the respondent’s consent, or five years’ separation. These grounds are comparatively uncommon in practice, given the time requirements that they impose.
In practice, therefore, most people are obliged to cite some element of fault in their petition.
