A divorce on the basis of two years’ separation is one achieved by agreement, rather than a ‘fault’ based divorce (i.e. adultery or unreasonable behaviour). The process is the same, however the petition is slightly more straightforward, and therefore it is not any quicker or cheaper than the alternatives. Getting divorced on the basis of having been separated for two years does not affect your financial claims arising from the marriage, although the change in your circumstances since separation may impact upon these claims.

No, this is just a term coined by the tabloid media. The length of time which a divorce takes through the court process is usually the same for any of the “facts” of divorce, but when the divorce starts is dependent upon whether the parties wish to wait until after two years or five years’ separation or whether they wish to initiate proceedings immediately on adultery or from unreasonable behaviour. A straightforward uncontested divorce where both parties cooperate is likely to take the least amount of time to complete, but these can take longer where there are complicating factors.

If you are married (whether separated or not) and you have voluntary sexual intercourse with a person who is not your husband/wife, you have committed adultery.
