Divorce procedure has a few basic requirements that must be noted. One needs to be in a resident currently or have resided there for three years right before the petition is filed, and one must either have been married three years or more or have evidence of exceptional cruelty and unreasonable behavior.

If these conditions are met then the divorce procedure begins with proving irretrievable breakdown as occurred. This can be proven through evidence of adultery, unreasonable behavior, desertion for two years, or separation for three to four years with the latter being acceptable even with the other spouse contesting it.
