What do I have to prove in order to get my civil partnership dissolved?

There is only one ground for dissolution namely that the civil partnership will have had to irretrievably broken down. In order to prove this a petitioner must establish one of four facts namely;

1.            Unreasonable behaviour;

2.            Separation for two years from the date of the petition which requires the respondent’s consent;

3.            Separation for five years  from the date of the petition (requiring no consent);

4.            Desertion.
