How long do you have to be apart before divorce can be granted without the need for a bitter battle which would be caused by legal action
Thank you for your question.

If your ex will agree to a divorce then one based on a two year separation is possible.
If not then you either have to live apart for five years - or you can simply divorce him on the basis of his Unreasonable Behaviour.
