How can you divorce someone after you get married. Myself

This answer was rated:

How long can you divorce someone after you get married. Myself and husband of less than a year agree that our marriage isn't working and agree to divorce.

Hi, thank you for your question. Please confirm if you are in England or Wales?

Thanks for confirming. Unfortunately you cannot pursue a divorce until you have been married for at least 1 year. After one year you can apply for divorce under unreasonable behaviour or once you have been separated for at least 2 years you can apply under the fact of 2 year separation (by consent).
