New 2 Year Period for Divorce Now Official

The President has signed the 38th amendment of the Constitution (dissolution of marriage) bill of 2006. This means that the 2 year period as a reduction of a 4 year period for separated parties to be entitled to make an application for divorce has now been reduced to 2 years.

In order to now bring an application for divorce parties need to show that they have been living separate and apart for a period of 2 out of the previous 3 years.
