What are the main stages in a Divorce?

Posted under News Updates on 22 February 2016
  • The Divorce process generally involves the following 2 stages:
    • Stage 1 (Divorce Proceedings): the parties will submit documents and information to the Court to show that a Divorce should be granted (e.g. proving the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage through adultery, unreasonable behaviour, desertion or separation)
    • Stage 2 (Ancillary Proceedings): the parties will submit documents and information to the Court to deal with all other key issues resulting from the Divorce (also known as Ancillary Matters):
      • Maintenance of the wife and children (e.g. financial support)
      • Custody, care and control of as well as access (e.g. visitation rights) to the children
      • Division of the matrimonial assets (e.g. matrimonial home)
