How do I know if I have grounds for divorce?

The two most common routes to divorce in the UK are on the grounds of adultery or unreasonable behaviour.

A third route is time-dependent as is involves desertion, or two/five years separation. These are potentially the easiest to prove but also usually involve a delay through reaching the required timescales.

Hire a Private investigator to get evidence for a divorce

To be sure of a relatively swift and straightforward divorce you need evidence of your partner has cheated on you or they have displayed “unreasonable behaviour” (another way of describing this is socially unacceptable behaviour).

This is a tough decision to have to make and a time of great distress. One of the hardest things to do while you have such high emotions is to shift through what you know, what you feel and what you are guessing is true.

You could be asking yourself how much of your partner’s behaviour is unacceptable; are they cheating or is it paranoia, and are they being cruel, or are you being over-sensitive?

There is no potential for divorce in the UK on the grounds of “irreconcilable differences”, a no-blame alternative.

You have to put together evidence of unreasonable behaviour or adultery to show that the marriage has broken down irretrievably and that one partner acted in a way that was intolerable for the other partner.

A Private Investigator will get this proof?

There are ways to catch your partner out and get sufficient information to submit in divorce proceedings. This could involve, for example, following them and taking photographs, checking internet history or mobile phone use, checking bank records to see if they have unexplained hotel bills or a second mobile phone.

These actions can be traumatic and make you feel even more unhappy, particularly if it takes a while to “catch them in the act”.

The best way to gather enough strong, irrefutable evidence that your partner has cheated is to engage a private investigator who specialises in cheating spouse investigations. They have the skills and experience to find evidence as quickly as possible, with the minimum stress and disruption to you.

A private investigator can also help you to gather proof of illegal activities or other behaviour which the court would deem as unreasonable or socially unacceptable behaviour. Get in touch with us today.
