Hi, thank you for your message. Assuming you live in the United kingdom when you apply for a divorce you’ll need to prove that your marriage has broken down and cannot be saved. You’ll need to give one or more of the following 5 reasons 1) Adultery 2) unreasonable behavior 3) Desertion 4) You’ve been separated for at least 2 years 5)You’ve been separated for at least 5 years.
For each grounds there are various conditions that may need to be met. But since you have been separated for 10 years you can divorce under ground 5 even if your ex wife does not agree.
