Unreasonable Behavior can be Phrased in a Fault-Free Manner


You may now be concerned that citing “irrational behavior” implies that you are blaming your spouse for the divorce. Don’t worry; a divorce attorney can assist you in this matter. Your lawyer can construct the divorce petition in non-blaming language so that your spouse does not feel responsible for the divorce. For example, if A claims that B is a thorn in her side, this fact can be neutralized by saying, “A believes that B is excessively critical of her, and the couple no longer agrees on many matters.”

Separation is Cited as a Reason for Divorce


If you plan to use “separation” as grounds for your divorce, I recommend getting a deed of separation to avoid any confusion. This document of separation establishes that you and your spouse are no longer together. But don’t worry if you’ve been separated for a long time without such a document. You shall be regarded as separated if the evidence shows that you have been split like a pair. Even if both of you are still living in the same house, you can be deemed separate. To make this work, you must demonstrate that you are both doing things on your own and avoid any behavior that suggests a married relationship.
