Special Criteria For Divorce?

The applicant can get an exemption from the requirement of 3 years of married life in certain circumstances. i.e.;

Exceptional hardship

One of the common grounds for ending a marriage is exceptional hardship. In this case, the person has to prove that he/she is not able to continue the married life due to intolerable circumstances like cruelty or unjust behaviour. The court may allow you to proceed for the divorce considering this reason even if you have not completed 3 years of your married life.

Irretrievable breakdown

Apart from the prerequisites and requirements, there can be some other grounds on which you can apply for the divorce. They are called irretrievable breakdown and includes adultery, unreasonable behavior, desertion, and separation.
