Positive Support from Watermans Legal

A good divorce lawyer will find solutions to problems relating to the family home, pension sharing and child contact. At Watermans Legal we have an experienced family law team to provide options & clear advice.

The grounds of divorce in Scotland are:

One year's separation with consent of both parties.

  • This is the most commonly used ground. The parties must not have any continuing financial dispute.

Two years' separation.

  • This process is very similar to ground 1 except that no signed consent of the spouse is required.

Unreasonable behaviour of one spouse.

  • This is the second most common ground and is used where the spouse seeking divorce is not prepared to wait for two years' separation, or the other spouse will not sign a consent form.


  • In practice this ground is rarely used due to the difficulty of proof.
