Hello, I am in the process of completing a divorce petition

This answer was rated:


I am in the process of completing a divorce petition (D8) and I have reached part 6. I have ticked boxes related to options that support my divorce application for part 5. Part 6 is the statement of case and asks me to state any brief details about the facts in section 5 upon which I rely. Does this mean I must briefly expand on every option I have selected in part 5?

Kind Regards

Thank you for your question.

Which ground are you applying on?

The grounds of the divorce are based upon 5 years of separation.

Then you simply put " The parties separated on xxxxx November 2008 and have lived separate and apart since that date"
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
