When the court grants a Decree of Divorce it is final and cannot be reversed. It dissolves a marriage and allows the parties to remarry.
The Family Law Act 2019 commenced on the 1st day of December 2019 and changed the rules for a getting a divorce in Ireland. Before this a couple must have been living apart for a period of 4 out of the previous 5 years prior to making an application for a divorce. The new rules set the period for living apart for at least 2 out of the previous 3 years prior to making the application.
Divorce in Ireland is a no-fault system which means there is no need for the parties to rely on any grounds of fault in their application such as adultery, for example.
