Family Law Fact: Desertion as a Ground for Divorce

Please note that the following guide only applies to divorces started before 4pm on 5th April 2022. For divorces after this date, no fault divorce now applies.

Please note that the following guide only applies to divorces started before 4pm on 5th April 2022. For divorces after this date, no fault divorce now applies.

Under the law in England and Wales, there is only one basis for divorce and this is the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. This can be proved with the use of one of five facts:

  • Adultery
  • Unreasonable behaviour
  • Separation for two years (with consent)
  • Separation for five years (without consent)
  • Desertion

Issues such as the division of the marital wealth and arrangements for any children of the relationship are dealt with separately to the main divorce proceedings.
Once a divorce is granted it will then proceed to the decree nisi and then the decree absolute, which will finalise the divorce.

 

 

Desertion as a ground for divorce

 

 


Desertion can be a difficult ground to use for divorce since various elements have to be proved for it to succeed. It may be advisable to use another ground such as unreasonable behaviour if that is available. The respondent needs to have deserted the petitioner for at least two years before they can apply for divorce.
