Getting a divorce is not as simple as getting married. You cannot just wake up one morning and demand a divorce from the court without reasons falling under the grounds laid down by the Matrimonial Causes Act, which designs the framework for divorce processes. A decree of marriage dissolution is impossible if the petitioner, in prosecuting or bringing the proceedings, has been charged and convicted of being guilty of conspiracy with intent to cause a perversion of justice. Even when both parties mutually agree to get a divorce for reasons known to them, a decree of dissolution of marriage may not be granted if there is damning evidence of collusion between them.
Divorce is a delicate affair; from time to time, the possibility of reconciling the parties to the marriage is considered. After deciding to get a divorce, the first thing to do is consult and brief a divorce lawyer about the divorce. This is why the Law Office of Mary Jo Pothier is here for you. I will help determine the facts that support the ground for the divorce from the reasons given by the party seeking a divorce. Suppose in your discussion with me, it is discovered that you have more than one fact that constitutes a ground for divorce; you would be advised to regard the fact that has the most substantial evidence with proof. A marriage celebrated under the Act can only be dissolved because the marriage has broken down irretrievably.
